ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals look for a series win in the finale of a four-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Pujols has sparked the Cardinals to wins in four of their last six games by hitting .550 (11-for-20) during a six-game hitting streak.

On Wednesday, Pujols singled and scored the game-tying run as the Cardinals rallied from three runs down to notch a 5-4 victory.

Adam Wainwright (6-7, 4.81 ERA) hopes Pujols' hot bat will help lead the Cardinals to another win.

As for Arizona, Doug Davis (5-9, 4.29) looks to help it earn a split as well. On Saturday Davis lost to San Francisco by allowing four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.
