Recap

Vernon Wells homered twice and Brandon Morrow tossed eight shutout innings as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-0 Thursday night.

Wells put the Jays up 2-0 in the first inning with a two-run homer and added a solo shot, his 18th of the season, in the third. Toronto did all of its scoring in the first three innings as it ended a three-game losing streak.

Adam Lind added a solo home run, his first since May 31, while Fred Lewis chipped in with an RBI sacrifice fly. Jose Molina added a pair of hits in the victory.

Morrow (5-5) took care of the rest, scattering five hits in his strongest outing of the season. The right-hander walked one and struck out eight, and has now allowed just five runs over his last five starts.

Adam Wainwright (10-5) took the loss for the Cardinals, surrendering five runs on six hits over four innings. Thursday marked Wainwright's shortest outing of the season, and the three home runs allowed was a season high.

Matt Holliday finished 1-for-3, making him 14-for-25 over his last six games.
