CHICAGO -- The St. Louis Cardinals held second baseman Kolten Wong out of the lineup for the second game of a day-night doubleheader after he banged his head during the opener Tuesday.

Wong was woozy after he sprawled out to catch a fly by Miguel Montero in shallow right field in the fifth inning. He was slow to get up and was replaced in the seventh.

With Wong out, Matt Carpenter made his first start at second since 2013.
