Cards give up 15, fall to Baltimore
BALTIMORE (AP) — Jonathan Schoop homered twice and drove in four runs, Manny Machado went deep in a seven-run second inning against Adam Wainwright and the Baltimore Orioles beat the St. Louis Cardinals 15-7 Saturday.
Adam Jones and Mark Trumbo got Baltimore started with successive first-inning shots, and Schoop finished the long-ball display with drives in the fourth and seventh.
In dropping eight of their previous nine games, the Orioles absorbed lopsided losses of 8-2, 16-3, 14-3 and 11-2.
In this one, they flipped the script by bolting to a 12-3 lead in the fourth inning and cruising to the finish.
Wade Miley (3-4) picked up his second win since April 14 despite allowing six runs, five earned, in 5 2/3 innings.
Wainwright (7-5) gave up nine runs and seven hits, including three home runs, over 1 2/3 innings — the shortest of his 268 career starts.
The nine runs and three homers matched the most he's allowed in any outing.
