Kolten Wong displayed power with his 4th home run of the season. Adron Chambers hit his first home run of the season with Memphis and Rob Johnson clubbed his third of the year.

Wong, estimated to arrive late this season or the start of 2014, has a 9 game hitting streak going with Memphis. His average is at .327 at the moment. While he was out of the lineup for a few days, Wong returned without any issues. He has hit three home runs in his last four games.

Springfield Cardinals (24-20): Springfield hosted Frisco yesterday as Tim Cooney got the start. It was a pitchers’ duel for both squads as Cooney went 7 innings, allowing 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, and striking out 7.
