Dunn struck his 20th career first inning home run today against Carlos Zambrano. Dunn likes to smite homers early in the game. Of his 163 home runs, 66 (40.5%) have come in the first third of the game.

Tomorrow the Cubs travel to St. Louis for a night game against Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals. Dunn has never homered off of Carpenter but he has nailed (Kerry) Wood. More exciting is Dunn's opportunity to hit a home run in his 25th ballpark. It would be apropos as Dunn homered in the last game played at the previous edition of Busch Stadium (against Matt Morris).
