News: Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong slugged a two-run pinch-hit home run in Monday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.

Wong was cleared of a concussion before the game, but manager Mike Matheny didn't immediately stick him back in the lineup. That left Wong the opportunity to provide the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the bullpen locked down the final six outs to hand the Cardinals a win.

"My neck was killing me today," Wong told MLB.com after the game. "But there comes certain points in time when you have to man up. Today was definitely one of those days where I told myself I just needed to man up and put a good at-bat together."

Wong has hit .252/.293/.404 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.
