Cards Rally to Beat Diamondbacks
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols tied it in the eighth inning with his first home run since returning the disabled list and rookie pinch-hitter Tony Cruz hit a game-ending RBI double in the ninth, capping the St. Louis Cardinals' comeback from a four-run deficit in a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.

Pujols' 18th homer, and first in four games back from a broken left wrist, was a two-run shot off Yhency Brazoban that tied it at 6. Pujols was 3 for 4 with a walk and three RBIs, a breakout game after going 1 for 12 his first three games back.

Cruz's first hit in six pinch-hit at-bats came off Joe Paterson (0-3), who gave up two hits and a walk. It's the biggest comeback of the season for the Cardinals.
