Statistically, it’s his best game in the Major Leagues.

This afternoon in St. Louis, Missouri, former University of Hawai’i All-American Kolten Wong saved his best for the sports most prestigious franchise.

Wong cracked four hits in the Cardinals’ 7-4 loss to the Yankees, the most in a single game in his Cardinal career.

The wooden onslaught started in the bottom of the 3rd, when Wong cracked a seeded single to center.

He followed that up with what was nearly his first career home run, scalding a 5th inning slider off of the top of the right field wall for a double.

Kolten stayed molten by using his wheels to leg out a 6th inning infield single. He capped off the evening with a line-drive RBI single up the middle in the 8th. The 4-5 night raises his batting average on the season to .283. Since being called back up to St. Louis and returning to the lineup on May 16th, Wong is hitting .324 with three doubles, four stolen bases, and five runs batted in.
