Fowler, Carpenter get going in Cardinals' 7-5 win over Twins

Dexter Fowler and Matt Carpenter were expected to be key members of the St. Louis Cardinals this season, among the top three hitters in the batting order. St. Louis hopes Wednesday's performance was a sign the two are getting back to their usual production. Fowler reached base four times and drove in two runs in his return to the lineup, and the Cardinals beat former starter Lance Lynn and the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Wednesday. Carpenter had three hits after being dropped to seventh, and Tommy Pham added a pair of hits that included his eighth homer.
