MLB Game Summary - St. Louis at Baltimore



(Sunday, August 10)

Final Score: St. Louis 8, Baltimore 3

Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Kolten Wong went 4-for-5 with two runs scored to help the St. Louis Cardinals avoid a three-game sweep against the Baltimore Orioles with an 8-3 victory on Sunday.

Peter Bourjos hit a three-run homer to back a solid outing from Lance Lynn, who allowed three runs on nine hits with six strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings.

More importantly, Lynn (12-8) held the powerful AL East leaders homerless for the first time in the series. Baltimore launched nine homers in winning the first two games by a combined score of 22-5.

"We like having Lance on the mound in these situations," said Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, "and we felt good about what our offense could do."

Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman (6-4) was charged with three runs on eight hits over five innings. Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz each knocked in a run for the O's.

Matt Carpenter, Wong and Matt Holliday each singled to open up the game for St. Louis in the first. Matt Adams grounded into a fielder's choice to score a run before Jhonny Peralta laced a single to center that scored Wong. Jon Jay walked to pack the bags again, but Oscar Taveras flied into a double play as Adam Jones gunned Adams down at the plate attempting to tag from third.

"I did a good job bouncing back in the second inning, but that first inning was a rough one," said Gausman. "It kind of seemed like wherever they hit the ball, we didn't have a guy there."

Baltimore answered in the home half with and RBI double off the bat of Cruz that cut the deficit to 2-1.

Jay got the run back in the third, however, ripping a single to right that scored Wong.

The O's trimmed the deficit to one again in the fifth. After back-to-back singles from Markakis and Manny Machado, Adam Jones flied out to center that allowed Markakis to move over to third. Lynn then uncorked a wild pitch that pushed Markakis across to make it a 3-2 game.

With one out and runners at the corners in the sixth, Daniel Descalso sent an RBI single to right, restoring St. Louis' two-run cushion.

The pendulum continued to swing in the home sixth, with Markakis making it a one-run game again courtesy of an RBI single to center.

Back-to-back doubles from Descalso and Carpenter made it 5-3 in the eighth, then a pinch-hitting Bourjos left little doubt of the outcome with his homer in the ninth.

Game Notes

Baltimore catcher Caleb Joseph had his five-game homer streak end ... The Orioles had won three straight and 12-of-16 coming in ... St. Louis is 8-12 against the American League this season, while Baltimore is 9-5 against the Senior Circuit.
