Surging Wong leads Cardinals vs. Padres

ST. LOUIS -- Overshadowed only somewhat by Luke Weaver's dominant pitching Wednesday night in the St. Louis Cardinals' 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres was what Kolten Wong did to ignite the offense.

Hitting leadoff for the night with first baseman Matt Carpenter laid up at home with a virus, Wong punched out three hits in five at-bats. He scored three runs and stole two bases in the eighth inning, setting up his final run.

That gave Wong a .314 average for the year, as well as a six-game hitting streak in which he has gone 10-for-22. He'll look to make it a seven-game run in Thursday night's series finale at Busch Stadium.
