Cubs' Dexter Fowler hits game-winning home run against Rockies


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler hit what would wind up being the game-winning two-run home run in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rockies. 

Fowler took an 0-2 pitch from LaTroy Hawkins in the top of the ninth inning over the right field fence. This gave the Cubs the lead, which was held in the bottom of the ninth. Fowler's now hitting .238 for the season. 

"LaTroy has a history of getting me out," Fowler said, via MLB.com. "I get 0-2 right there, and I'm sitting there like, 'Man, not again.' I stepped out and took a deep breath. Hats off to my teammates. They battled in that inning. Welington [Castillo] comes in and gets a key at-bat, [Arismendy Alcantara's] walk, that sets the table for everything."

Fowler now has one home run and four RBI through the first week of the season.
