One night after saving a run with a stellar defensive play in the Cardinals’ series opener against the Dodgers on Monday night at Dodger Stadium, second baseman Kolten Wong stunned even himself with one of the most dazzling defensive plays of the Cardinals’ season.

With closer Bud Norris trying to protect a 5-2 lead in the ninth inning, Wong ranged to the shortstop side of second base, stopped a grounder from Justin Turner, picked it up, and, from the grass, side-armed a throw as he tumbled to the ground.

The 60.9 mph throw went 117 feet to first base and beat Turner to register the first out of the inning.

The Dodgers challenged, but the call was confirmed by replay. Norris got the final two outs to pick up his 26th save and send the Cardinals into the National League Wild Card lead.
