Cardinals Beat Padres 6-3 for 3-game Sweep
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Carlos Beltran hit his NL-leading 14th home run and the Cardinals beat up on former St. Louis postseason star Jeff Suppan for a 6-3 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night and a three-game sweep.

Rookie Lance Lynn (7-1) tied the Phillies' Cole Hamels for the major league victory lead.

David Freese snapped a 3-for-34 slump with a homer and RBI single as the Cardinals had more than enough offense minus injured starters Lance Berkman, Jon Jay and Allen Craig.

Will Venable hit his sixth career leadoff home run and also doubled and singled for the Padres. San Diego was held to three or fewer runs for the seventh straight game.
