Now, the duo is making the dream a reality.
Since Young was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Aug. 14, the two have started every game for the Rockies. Their speed and athleticism provide a formidable challenge for opponents at the top of the Colorado order.
"Whenever we can get that kind of production at the top, I think it's going to create opportunities for guys No. 3 and lower to drive in some runs," Young said.
Entering Wednesday, Fowler had 12 hits and four runs in his past nine games, including a key two-out single on Tuesday night. Young, who was 3-for-4 with a stolen base on Tuesday, sparked the Colorado offense with a leadoff double in the 5-2 win.
"I know my job's to get on base and that's all I'm thinking about," Young said. "Whatever I can do to get on base, that's all I'm trying to do."
