      Cardinals beat Orioles 8-3 to avoid sweep

      BALTIMORE (AP) -- Rookie Kolten Wong had four hits and scored twice, Peter Bourjos homered and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.

      After allowing nine home runs in losing the first two games of the series by a collective 22-5 score, the Cardinals amassed a season-high 17 hits -- 14 of them singles.

      Bourjos capped the barrage with a three-run drive in the ninth off Zach Britton, ending the left-hander's run of 27 straight scoreless appearances at home.

      Wong's four hits, all of them singles, matched a career high and lifted his batting average 11 points to .253.
