DeJong went 1-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a win over the Phillies on Monday.
DeJong's 419-foot shot to right in the fifth was the big blast of a four-run frame for the Cardinals. The red-hot shortstop hit .360 during April, and he's opened May in similarly strong fashion. Factoring in Monday's tally, DeJong is 6-for-20 with two homers, four RBI, four walks and four runs over the first six games of the month.
DeJong went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 13-5 loss to the Cubs.
DeJong drilled a two-run homer to make it 13-4 in the ninth inning but obviously it was a futile effort. The 25-year-old connected for his first homer since April 23, giving him six on the year alongside a .992 OPS in 149 plate appearances.
DeJong is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.
He'll be on the bench for the first time this season after starting at shortstop in each of the Cardinals' 30 games to date. Yairo Munoz gets the starting nod in place of DeJong, who will put his 11-game hitting streak on hold until Friday against the Cubs unless he's summoned from the bench in the series finale.
DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Brewers.
DeJong took Alex Wilson deep in the eighth inning to provide the go-ahead run for the Cardinals. It was his fifth home run of the season and brought his extra-base hit total to 17 for the campaign. With an excellent .337/.394/.632 line through 104 plate appearances, DeJong has gotten off to a quick start.
DeJong went 2-for-5 with a run-scoring double, another two-bagger and two runs in a win over the Mets on Saturday.
Following a rare 0-for-4 night Friday, DeJong was right back to tormenting opposing pitchers Saturday. With his pair of doubles, DeJong now has 14 extra-base hits in 91 plate appearances, putting him nearly a third of the way to the 45 he amassed in 2018 over 490 opportunities. Moreover, despite seeing a career-low 3.65 pitches per plate appearance thus far this season, DeJong's current .329 average and .396 on-base percentage easily qualify as career highs.
