VIDEO: Cardinals Dexter Fowler tweets his way out of slump, gets first hit after posting ‘I will get a hit’ 13 times .
If you tweet it, hits will come.
Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler got himself out of an Opening Week slump Monday after sending out that morning “I will get a hit” 13 times.
After going hitless in the first three games of the season, Fowler singled in the third inning of the Cardinals game against the Brewers Monday afternoon and also picked up his first RBI of the year to give St. Louis an early 2-1 lead.
The team’s Twitter account showed the right fielder some love, tweeting “he got a hit” 13 times; it also tried to use the same method so the Cards will win the World Series.
Other big leaguers like Josh Reddick and Jose Ramirez noted that Fowler’s strategy worked, so they decided to give it a try too.
Fowler went 0 for 13 against the Mets this past weekend and struck out six times.
