Cardinals Beat Orioles for 3-Game Sweep
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Lance Berkman homered twice, Jon Jay hit a three-run shot, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles 9-6 on Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.

The Cardinals never trailed in the series and outscored Baltimore 20-9. In the finale, St. Louis built an 8-0 lead in the fourth inning and coasted to its fourth win in nine games since slugger Albert Pujols went on the disabled list with a fractured wrist.

Berkman hit a two-run drive in the second inning and led off the seventh a homer for his 29th career multihomer game and fourth this season.

Nolan Reimold homered and had four RBIs and Mark Reynolds hit a two-run drive for the Orioles, who fell a season-worst eight games under .500 (35-43).
