Cardinals' Kolten Wong: Sticks on bench Thursday

Wong is out of the lineup Thursday against the Phillies.

Wong will stick on the bench for a second straight game as manager Mike Matheny gives Matt Carpenter another start following his three-hit performance Wednesday. The 27-year-old Wong is hitting just .182/.293/.293 through 37 games this season, so he could start to lose out on playing time if Carpenter continues to pick it up at the plate.
