Wong swaps spots with Garcia

Posted: Updated:

     When Kolten Wong was sent down to the minors a few weeks back, you kinda had the feeling the University of Hawaii alum wouldn't need to unpack his bags.
     
     Wednesday, the Cardinals second baseman received the phone call he'd been expecting.

     St. Louis elevated Wong back to the show after finding his swing with the Cardinals triple-a affiliate.
     The Kamehameha-Hawaii grad batted .344 with two homeruns and five steals in 15-games; after batting .225 as the Cardinals everyday second baseman prior to the demotion.
     
     The unfortunate part, Wong swaps places with fellow UH alum Greg Garcia who was batting .200 in 7-games with the Cards.
     Wong sat out St. Louis' Wednesday night game, battling the flu.
