Earlier this season when the Colorado Rockies were riding a high in first place in the National League West, Dexter Fowler was playing like an MVP candidate. If his name came up and you knew the game was on the line, you had better of hoped you bet on the Rockies. He was on that big of a roll. As with most players, Fowler hit a slump about the time the Rockies hit a swoon of their own. Now as the Rocks try and regain first place they look to a returning surge from Fowler as he gets back on track in a big way.
Fowler is doing fairly well in the last four games. Well that is if you consider .470 batting average with 8 hits, 6 runs and 6 RBI good. I consider that pretty good especially the two homers he hit on Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. His average has gone up 15 points over that span and he looks to be seeing and hitting the ball with as much power and success as he had early on this season.
This could not come at a better time for the Rockies. They are only a couple of games back from the Arizona Diamondbacks and tied with the San Francisco Giants for second place. They are going into a tough series with one of baseball’s best teams in the Cincinnati Reds. To say the very least they will need to get production from Fowler and others on the offensive side if they plan to win a couple of those games. Fowler looks more than ready to do his part.
