DeJong went 1-for-5 with a walkoff solo home run in the Cardinals' 7-6 victory over the Nationals on Monday. The Cardinals overcame a two-run deficit in the final two innings to come away with the win, with DeJong providing the knockout blow to lead off the bottom of the ninth. DeJong's OPS has fallen more than 90 points from his rookie season, but the shortstop has turned in one of his more productive stretches of the campaign over the past week. He has recorded a hit in each of his last seven games, homering four times and driving in nine runs over that span.
DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the 8-2 win over Kansas City on Sunday. DeJong has three homers in his last five games, bringing him to 12 on the season alongside his 35 RBI. He owns a disappointing .760 OPS in just 305 plate appearances this season after registering a .857 number in his rookie campaign last year.
DeJong went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a win over the Royals on Friday. DeJong's bat is starting to pick up a little steam, with Friday serving as the eighth straight game in which he's reached safely. The shortstop could also be rediscovering his power stroke after an extended drought, as he's homered in two of his last three games. Factoring in Friday's production, he's racked up five RBI over his last three contests, and his overall August total of six leaves him just one short of the amount he compiled during all of July.
DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Marlins on Wednesday. DeJong enjoyed his time against Marlins pitching over the last three games, going 4-for-11 with two doubles, a home run, four RBI and two runs during the three-game set. The shortstop is looking to get his bat back on track after a .217 tally in July dropped his season average 17 points to .244.
DeJong went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday. It was a night of hard contact for DeJong, whose 370-foot shot with Jedd Gyorko aboard in the seventh erased a 2-0 deficit. DeJong has been in the midst of an atypical power drought over the last three months, a span that also includes a significant absence due to thumb surgery. Prior to Tuesday's round tripper, the 25-year-old had left the yard just once in the 31 games he'd played since May 12, but he certainly has the pop in his bat to make up ground in a hurry moving forward.
