When will the Cardinals' offense rise?

To what extent will the Cardinals get production from their offense? Miklasz discusses the Cardinals' problem spots & issues he has with Dexter Fowler's performance thus far.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Better late than never for Cardinals CF Dexter Fowler, who hit his first two home runs as a Redbird on Wednesday afternoon. The solo shots both came off Pirates RHP Gerrit Cole and accounted for St. Louis' 2-1 win.

The Cardinals completed the oddity of sweeping the Pittsburgh Pirates in a three-game series with all the games by the score of 2-1. Dexter Fowler provided all the offense with solo home runs off Gerrit Cole, Michael Wacha pitched 6 2/3 strong innings and Trevor Rosenthal filled in for closer Seung Hwan Oh for his first save of 2017.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

Dexter Fowler got a rousing ovation on Opening Day, but until Wednesday he had never fully enjoyed the adulation Cardinal fans are famous for. He got it with a fifth-inning curtain call after his second home run of the game off Gerrit Cole. This one was a line drive that landed just inside the right-field foul pole. Fowler takes comfortable cuts against Cole, one of the game's hardest-throwing starters.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

Dexter Fowler hit his first home run as a Cardinal in the third inning against Gerrit Cole Wednesday afternoon. Fowler came into Wednesday batting just .143, but there have been increasing signs of life from his bat. He hit a triple to a similar part of the ballpark Tuesday night. As he goes, they'll go?
