The two Cards legends had weekends to remember.
Though Molina missed the final two games, having to tend to a personal matter in Puerto Rico, he picked up three hits in the series opener.
Pujols, on the other hand, blasted home runs No. 691 and 692 in the second game of the series.
Prior to the series finale, the Diamondbacks honored the two Cardinals legends, with Adam Wainwright standing in to accept an honor on Molina’s behalf.
The Diamondbacks were kind enough to donate $10,000 dollars each to Pujols and Molina’s charitable foundations.

D’Backs Honor Cards Greats
This is a nice gesture by the Diamondbacks.
Pujols and Molina have both been very charitable and active in the St. Louis community since they came up to the big leagues.
This is a nice little farewell gift to both legends and a classy move by the Diamondbacks organization.
Pujols and Molina have been honored in each of their final stops through certain cities this year.
Both of them will be retiring at the end of the season, marking the end of an era in St. Louis.
But their impact will forever be felt by the baseball world, and even opposing teams have taken the time to honor these two Cardinals greats by giving them gifts and honoring them with pregame ceremonies before games.
The baseball world will certainly miss these two legends, and the game will not be the same without them.
It’s worth trying to see these guys play one last time before they officially hang up their spikes.
