Oscar Taveras and Kolten Wong, the Cardinals' top two prospects, each collected three hits and drove in three runs Monday, helping lead Triple-A Memphis to a 15-2 victory at Colorado Springs.
Taveras, ranked No. 2 on MLB.com's Top 100 prospects list, went 3-for-6 with two doubles and scored a run. Wong, ranked No. 54 on the Top 100, finished the game 3-for-6 with a double and a home run. He scored three runs.
Taveras had his 16-game hitting streak snapped Saturday, but is as hot as ever. He is hitting .312 with five home runs and a .878 OPS in 28 games this season.
Wong began the season as the Cardinals' starting second baseman, but was sent back to Triple-A after hitting .225 in 20 games. He has found much more success at the plate in Memphis. In eight games, he is hitting .343 with a .864 OPS. His home run Monday was his first of the season at either level.
