BALTIMORE (AP) — Alexi Amarista had three extra-base hits and the San Diego Padres matched their season-high with 17 hits, beating the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep.

Everth Cabrera had four hits and a walk, and Jedd Gyorko had three singles for the Padres, who are 13-6 after a 5-15 start.

John Baker hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the second against Freddy Garcia (0-2), and Amarista hit a two-run homer in the fourth for a 4-1 lead.

J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters homered for the Orioles off Jason Marquis (5-2), who won his fourth straight start. Manny Machado had four hits.

In getting swept for the first time this season, the Orioles allowed a season-high 17 hits.

Marquis allowed two runs, seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings. He has a 2.45 ERA in his last four starts.

Garcia gave up four runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings.

Baltimore loaded the bases in the first before Wieters hit an inning-ending groundout. Dale Thayer relieved with two on in the sixth and retired three in a row.

Baker's second-inning single was one of three straight two-out hits in an inning that included Blanks' homer, Amarista's second double of the game and Will Venable's RBI double off T.J. McFarland.

Amarista hit a two-run homer off Tommy Hunter in the seventh.
