Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong drives in two RBI in win over Mets
|(5/21/15) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 3 for 5 and drove in two RBI in his team's 9-0 win over the Mets on Wednesday.
Wong scored the first run of the game on a first-inning double by Jhonny Peralta. He then singled in runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
"That's us clicking on all cylinders," Wong said.
Wong has hit .311/.358/.473 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 148 at-bats.
Kolten Wong back in leadoff spot, Matt Adams at cleanup for Cards
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) With Peter Bourjos resting after facing left-hander Jonathon Niese, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny inserted second baseman Kolten Wong back in the leadoff spot Wednesday night against the Mets.
With Wong back in the leadoff spot, Matheny moved Randal Grichuk to the eighth spot. Matt Adams also returned to the lineup and is batting cleanup against Bartolo Colon and the Mets.
Wong is hitting .339 (21 for 62) with four homers and 13 RBI over his last 16 games. Adams is hitting .105 (4 for 38) with nine strikeouts over his last 13 games played.
Peter Bourjos out of Cards' lineup Monday, Randal Grichuk gets CF nod
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) Center fielder Peter Bourjos is not in the Cardinals' lineup Monday in New York against the Mets, as the recently activated (back) Randal Grichuk will get the start in center, batting eighth.
Grichuk began the season on the Cards' Opening Day roster but was shelved April 24 with a lower back strain. He was activated May 16 and is 2 for 5 since his return.
Bourjos is hitting .160 (4 for 25) over his last eight games.
With Bourjos out of the lineup, second baseman Kolten Wong moves up to hit leadoff for just the third time this season.
"We'll keep feeling our way through it and hopefully somebody will take advantage of it, or nightly, somebody will take advantage of it," manager Mike Matheny said to MLB.com. "We have to find that good mix."
Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong crushes go-ahead home run
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 1 for 3 at the plate in St. Louis' 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday.
Wong did his damage in the sixth inning with the game tied at 1. Wong crushed an Alfredo Simon offering over the right field wall for a solo home run, his fifth of the season.
"I just had an idea what was coming," Wong said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He attacked Carp, Heyward and (Matt Adams) the same way. He started going with the splitter early. He didn’t show me a single fastball my first two at-bats, so I went up there and was guessing for a fastball. If he'd thrown a splitter, I'd start battling after that, I wanted to go up there being ready for a fastball just in case.
"I was just looking to drive something in the gaps. I know if I hit something good I have the power to hit one out. I don't try to do too much, just put a good swing on pitches I know I can drive and get something going. I just wanted to get in scoring position somehow."
Wong isn't worrying about his move toward the bottom of the order.
"Not really," he said. "Obviously being the first batter is different, but any other position throughout the lineup, it doesn't really matter to me where I'm hitting. Wherever Mike puts me (I'm fine). I'm not a guy who's going to want to hit in one position. I know I can hit anywhere in the lineup and help produce."
Wong is now hitting .311 with 18 RBI in 132 at- bats this season.
Cardinals' Kolten Wong slugs fourth home run Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 1 for 3 with a walk and a two-run home run in his team's 4-3 loss to the Pirates Sunday.
The Cardinals fell behind after just one inning, but Wong was able to briefly tie the game with his sixth-inning home run. It was his second home run in the last three games and his third during his current eight-game hitting streak.
Wong has hit .336/.380/.518 with four home runs, 17 RBI and three stolen bases in 110 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Branded a contact hitter who may or may not hit for moderate power someday, Kolten Wong trampled all over that scouting report as a rookie. He made contact at a high rate, yes, but because of an elevated fly-ball rate, it translated more to power than batting average. It began with him hitting 11 homers in 244 at-bats after returning from a shoulder injury in early July and continued with a couple clutch homers in the postseason.|
Playing time status: The Cardinals never fully bought into Wong as their full-time second baseman in 2014, frequently sitting him against left-handed pitchers and even sending him to the minors for a spell early in the season. But it's clear they're committed to him for the long haul, having ditched his most obvious platoon partners this offseason. Especially after the playoff heroics, his role appears secure.
2015 outlook: Only 24, Wong is still finding himself in the majors, so the tradeoff between home runs and batting average hasn't completely sorted itself out. No matter where exactly he lands, though, he has the kind of well-rounded skill set Fantasy owners look for, right down to his 20 stolen bases last year. He'll probably slip outside the top 12 second basemen on Draft Day, but he's a good bet to join that group by season's end.
