BALTIMORE (AP) - Steve Pearce homered and drove in a career-high five runs, Matt Wieters had four hits and five RBIs, and the Baltimore Orioles cruised past the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-6 Thursday night for a three-game sweep.
The only other time Baltimore had two players with at least five RBIs was on June 13, 1999, when Cal Ripken had six and Will Clark tallied five in a 22-1 rout of Atlanta.
Mark Reynolds went 4 for 5 with a homer for the Orioles, who built a 10-0 lead en route to their fifth straight victory. Much of the damage came against former Oriole Erik Bedard, who yielded seven runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings.
The 12 runs and 16 hits were season highs for Baltimore.
