(KMOV.com)— With Mark Ellis’ injury, Kolten Wong begins the season the sole second baseman, and Mike Matheny wasted no time in putting the rookie to work. 

Wong will bat second behind last year’s All-Star leadoff man Matt Carpenter to open 2014’s action. Following a slow 0-for-10 start in spring training, Wong finished with a .375 average, two homers and nine RBIs. 

Here is the full Cardinal lineup for Opening Day:

1. Matt Carpenter 3B

2. Kolten Wong 2B

3. Matt Holliday LF

4. Allen Craig RF

5. Yadier Molina C

6. Matt Adams 1B

7. Jhonny Peralta SS

8. Peter Bourjos CF

9.  Adam Wainwright P

Stay tuned for news, notes, photos and videos as Opening Day kicks off.
