Cards open series vs. Dodgers

ST. LOUIS -- Paul DeJong might face quite a task Monday when the St. Louis Cardinals start a four-game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Busch Stadium.

Less than 24 hours after homering in his first major league at-bat, DeJong might have to follow it up with his first big league start. With left-hander Rich Hill scheduled to take the mound for Los Angeles, there is a chance DeJong could pick up a game at second base, third base or shortstop.

Regardless, DeJong did something in the ninth inning Sunday at Coors Field that every kid dreams about when playing ball in the backyard. He cracked a towering solo shot off Colorado closer Greg Holland as a pinch hitter, although it merely served as window dressing to the Rockies' 8-4 victory.
