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 2-for-4 with a run in a win over the Tigers on Sunday.
The multi-hit effort came on the heels of a Saturday night solo home run for the shortstop, who's now gone deep on three occasions over his last nine games. DeJong has seen his average (.231) take a precipitous drop from the .285 figure he mustered in his rookie 2017 campaign, but a thumb injury earlier this season that cost him nearly two months could certainly have been a drag on his overall development as a young hitter. The 24-year-old is encouraging putting good wood on the ball since the All-Star break, however, smacking a total of 19 extra-base hits (nine doubles, one triple, nine homers) over 203 second-half plate appearances.
DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.
Although he was overshadowed by the heroics of teammates Yadier Molina and Marcell Ozuna, DeJong made significant contributions to Tuesday's slugfest as well. The shortstop has been dialed in at the plate of late, racking up nine RBI with the aid of a pair of homers over the last six games.
