Wong showed his skills on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The Cardinals won the game 5-2. Cardinals righty Bud Norris came into the game in the bottom half of the final inning. He faced Justin Turner in his first exchange.
The Dodgers star took a called first striker before fouling off a 94.5 mph fastball. He then watched a pitch go by for a ball, before putting his bat on a 94.1 mph fastball. The ball screamed toward the outfield, rolling to the left of second base. But Wong hustled to his right and dove on the ground.
He came up with the stop and used his arms to throw himself back to his feet. Wong stayed up just long enough to fire a throw to first base, before falling to the ground. The toss got to first baseman Matt Carpenter just before Turner reached the bag.
Wong went 0-for-3 at the plate with a run scored and a walk. Turner had an 0-for-5 performance for the Dodgers.
