It's been a rough season for Dexter Fowler. Heading into the game on June 13th, Dexter's batting average sits at a dismal .172. With an equally miserable .196 BABIP, the man literally cannot buy a hit. He is one of 4 major contributors to the lineup that opened the season

For the first time since the 100 win 2015 season, the Cardinals are going to play the Minnesota Twins. That last series ended up in a 4 game split, where we left in disappointment following a meltdown by our bullpen. Kevin Siegrist allowed a Joe Mauer homer to tie it
