MIAMI (AP) - Lance Lynn came off the disabled list to pitch six shutout innings in his first outing since June 7, and the St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep Thursday by beating Miami 5-1.

Lynn (5-4), who had been sidelined with a strained forearm, allowed only two hits and lowered his ERA to 2.84.

Backup infielder Pete Kozma, who came into the game hitless in his past 21 at-bats, singled three times, scored twice and drove in a run for his second RBI this year. His average rose to from .093 to .140.

The sweep was the first for the Cardinals in Miami since Aug. 4-7, 2011. St. Louis (48-24) moved a season-high 24 games above .500, while Miami (30-44) fell a season-worst 14 games under .500.

Miami's Adeiny Hechavarria homered with two outs in the ninth to avert a shutout.

Dan Haren (6-5) allowed four runs in six-plus innings.
