O'Neill went 1-for-1 with a walk and a three-run home run in Tuesday's 11-5 win over the Pirates.
O'Neill really put the game out of reach when he clubbed a pinch-hit, three-run homer -- his eighth of the year -- off Nick Burdi in the eighth inning to give the Cardinals an eight-run lead. Prior to the blast O'Neill had gone hitless over his last 11 at-bats, striking out seven times against no walks.
O'Neill is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.
After starting each of the past eight games and batting .212 with three home runs, O'Neill will bow out of the starting nine with a healthy Marcell Ozuna (shoulder) reclaiming an everyday role in left field. O'Neill hasn't lacked in power across his multiple stops in the big leagues and has slugged 33 home runs between the majors at Triple-A Memphis this season, but his poor plate skills (41.1 K%) hurt his case for steady at-bats.
O'Neill went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs overall in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.
The thin air of Coors Field proved an ideal match for O'Neill's potent bat, as the slugging outfielder generated a pair of multi-hit efforts -- which included three extra-base hits (one double, two homers) -- over the three-game set. The 23-year-old has left the yard in three of the last four contests overall, and he's hitting .341 (14-for-41) over the 14 games he's played in his current major-league stint.
O'Neill went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs in Friday's win over the Rockies.
O'Neill collected his third double and his fifth home run of the year Friday, marking his second consecutive game with a home run. The 23-year-old is hitting .289/.325/.526 with 13 RBI and 17 runs in 76 at-bats this season. His playing time figures to take a hit once Marcell Ozuna (shoulder) returns to the lineup.
O'Neill entered Friday's 5-2 win over the Brewers as a pinch runner in the eighth inning and recorded a stolen base and a run.
The outfielder was out of the lineup again Friday after starting in right field Thursday, but he still found a way to make an impact. Running for Jose Martinez in the eighth, O'Neill swiped his second bag of the season, putting him in scoring position for Kolten Wong's subsequent two-run double. Both O'Neill and Martinez are swinging hot bats at the moment, meaning they'll likely continue to split time in right field for the time being.
