Cardinals recall Kolten Wong



(KPUA) The St. Louis Cardinals have recalled second baseman Kolten Wong from Triple-A Memphis following a four-hit, four-RBI game earlier this week, but sent him home less than two hours after the announcement due to a stomach illness. 
The 23-year old Wong opened the season as the Cardinals starting second baseman, but was demoted last month when his batting average dipped to .225. He hit .344 with two home runs, 10 RBIs and five steals in 15 games with Memphis. Veteran Mark Ellis, who replaced Wong at second was hitting .190 with seven RBIs in 63 trips to the plate.
