Orioles Rock Cardinals

For a second straight game the Orioles crushed the Cardinals 10-3 at Camden Yards in their three-game series. Nelson Cruz smacked his 30th homer, while Caleb Joseph and Delmon Young also left the yard. It was Joseph's fifth straight start with a home run. Young had two hits and three RBI and Ubaldo Jimenez grabbed his fourth win in his return to the rotation. Jimenez allowed three runs over six innings making his first start since early in July. John Jay connected for a long ball and drove in two in the loss. John Lackey was lit up for nine runs and 13 hits in five-plus innings to fall to 1-and-1 for St. Louis. The Cardinals lost the opener of the set, 12-2.
