Cardinals Wong's Walk-Off - 12' x 16" Print
After losing Yadier Molina, their veteran clubhouse leader, to injury and blowing a 4-3 lead in the top of the 9th inning in Game 2 of the NLCS, the Redbirds needed something to lift their spirits. Enter rookie second baseman Kolten Wong. Wong lifted a Sergio Romo pitch to right for a solo home run to win the game and even the series at a game apiece.
Wong’s clutch homer was the Cardinals’ fourth of what was an unlikely power surge; in 2014 the team homered just 105 times, good for dead last in the NL. The Cardinals would not win another game in the series and the Giants won the National League pennant for the third time in five seasons en route to their third World Series Championship in that span.
