Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong finding his own style in leadoff role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has reached base in 8 of 16 game-opening plate appearances in 2015, per MLB.com. 

"It's kind of been trials here and there," Wong said. "Most coaches don't really like me being a leadoff hitter just because I'm so aggressive, but I've learned how to kind of be aggressive but in the zone and be someone who can still see pitches and get on base." 

Wong has a .269/.319/.373/.693 slash line in 16 games in the leadoff spot this season. He also has one home run, four doubles, three RBI, 11 runs, five walks, 12 strikeouts and one stolen base.

"I kind of just bought into the fact that being a leadoff hitter, you need to have your own style," Wong said. "For me, I'm still aggressive, I'll still swing at the first pitch, but I'm making sure when I swing early in the count, it's on balls I know I can drive. When I do that and stay aggressive in the strike zone, I'm doing fine."

Cardinals' Kolten Wong 'getting more comfortable' leading off


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is 8 for 19 with three walks in his last five games, which have all come with him slotted in the leadoff spot.

"I’m definitely getting more comfortable," Wong said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I’m starting to realize what kind of hitter I am. I understand that I can see some pitches and still be comfortable going deep into at-bats. Before, I kind of panicked leading off because I wasn’t someone who was comfortable taking pitches. Now I know I can still drive balls, no matter what the count. It just takes time. Leadoff isn’t an easy place to hit at. It’s all about learning and understanding how to hit leadoff and then buying into it."

The lineup change as pushed third baseman Matt Carpenter to the No. 2 spot, a move he sees as positive for the offense.

"I think we’re a better offense with him hitting leadoff and me hitting in the second spot," Carpenter said. "He just needed to develop as a hitter, and we’re seeing what he’s been able to become — a guy that can have tough at-bats. That’s the key to what a leadoff (hitter) is. It’s not giving away at-bats. And he hasn’t given away at-bats all year."

Wong's recent hot stretch gives him a .315/.369/.469 line with five home runs and 22 RBI in 162 at-bats.

"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.

Peter Bourjos out of Cards' lineup Monday, Randal Grichuk gets CF nod


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

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
(5/17/2015) 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.
