Wong racks up career-high four hits

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's hard to believe that only a few weeks ago, Kolten Wong had been sent back down to Triple-A.

There's no question the former Hawaii All-American was disappointed at the move and now, he's showing the Cardinals they should have never let him go in the first place.

The Kamehameha-Hawaii grad cranked a career-high four hits Wednesday night in a 7-4 loss against the New York Yankees.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, he crushed a ball to right field that would've been his first career Major League homer, but he had to settle for a double instead.

He also had an RBI-single late in the game.

Wong has 16 hits in the month of May.
