DeJong went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in a win over the Braves on Monday. DeJong was one of four Cardinals to leave the yard in Monday's offensive explosion. The shortstop has hit 10 of his 18 homers on the season since the All-Star-break, but his .285 on-base percentage in the second half represents a 56-point drop from the figure he generated before the Midsummer Classic.
DeJong went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs in a win over the Dodgers on Sunday. DeJong came home on both of Yadier Molina's RBI singles, giving him his first game with multiple runs since Sept. 4. The shortstop has also reached safely in nine consecutive games, a welcome stretch of offensive success following a lackluster August in which he hit just .202 and posted a forgettable .282 on-base percentage.
DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and a run in a win over the Pirates on Monday. DeJong put a serious dent in a 4-1 deficit with his fourth-inning two-bagger, plating Jose Martinez and Marcell Ozuna. The shortstop has hit safely in six of the last eight games, driving in six runs on eight hits over that span. Additionally, after striking out at least once in 15 consecutive games, DeJong has whiffed only once in his last 16 plate appearances.
DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in an extra-inning loss to the Nationals on Monday. DeJong got the Cardinals out to a surprising 2-0 lead in the first off Max Scherzer with a timely single that plated Yairo Munoz and Matt Adams. The shortstop has hit safely in three of his last four games, and he's driven in seven runs over that span. However, DeJong continues to struggle with consistent contact, as he's now struck out at least once in 13 straight games.
DeJong went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run, two runs and five RBI to help the Cardinals to a 12-5 victory over the Reds on Friday. It was a monster day at the dish for DeJong, who drove in five of the Cardinals' 12 runs on the day, three of which came on a third-inning shot off Homer Bailey. He's now slashing .232/.309/.428 through 332 at-bats, which are underwhelming numbers coming off last season's breakout showing when he put up an .857 OPS. Perhaps this big showing against Cincinnati is a sign that his bat is waking up for the home stretch of the season.
