BALTIMORE (AP) — Kyle Lohse pitched five shutout innings in a performance shortened by rain, and the Cardinals got solo home runs from Colby Rasmus and Matt Holliday.

 

It was only the second win in seven games for St. Louis since three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list with a broken left wrist. The Cardinals were off Monday after being swept at home in a three-game series against Toronto.

 

Lohse (8-4) gave up four hits and was aided by two double plays.

 

He threw only 69 pitches before a thunderstorm stopped play for 28 minutes with St. Louis ahead 4-0 in the top of the sixth.

 

J.J. Hardy homered for the Orioles, who trailed 6-0 before scoring twice in the eighth. Rookie Zach Britton (6-6) gave up four runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings.
