Cardinals-Diamondbacks Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals' bats have supplied them an edge over one of the other top lineups in the NL.

The way things have gone so far for the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, there is a good chance the Cardinals will continue their power surge in this series when they try to take the four-game set Thursday night.

St. Louis (12-9) has won four of five behind an outburst of 45 runs and 66 hits, lifting its MLB-best scoring average to 6.52. Sealing a series victory in Arizona would give the Cardinals their 16th win in the last 18 meetings, including a 9-2 mark at Chase Field.
