Aruba, Venezuela, ooh I want to take ya (deep)

It doesn't matter where you're pitching or where you're from. Adam Dunn will eventually homer off you. Someone should nickname him "Death and taxes" for the inevitable certainty of his slamming home runs. Ken Keltner, Bill Madlock, Roy Smalley and Don Demeter are the latest to have their home run totals surpassed.

Dunn's blow off Aruba's (ninth country) Sidney Ponson at the new incarnation of Busch Stadium (stadium #25) came in the first inning with two outs.

Today's victim will be Mark Mulder, whom Dunn knocked out a pair of home runs off last season in Cincinnati in back-to-back innings.

Dunn has two career home runs on Easter Sunday. On April 20, 2003, Dunn in a game against the Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings Montreal Expos at Hiram Bithorn stadium in Puerto Rico, homered against Luis Ayala. Versus the Pirates on April 11, 2004, Dunn put one in the Cincinnati bleachers off of Oliver Perez.
