The Reds high-powered offense struggled mightily against the Philadelphia Phillies the last few days, which made me think that updating the blog by series might be the way to go when nothing is happening.
Nothing was happening in Cincinnati where the Reds scored a mere five runs in three games against the Phillies. Dunn was 1 for 11 in the series, his only hit a single breaking up Jon Lieber's perfect game in the seventh inning of the second game of the series.
The Reds travel to Pittsburgh after the Hall of Fame exhibition game against the Pirates was rained out today in Cooperstown. Dunn has one career home run at PNC Stadium in Pittsburgh, career #153 last August. The scheduled starters are Paul Maholm, Oliver Perez and Victor Santos. Dunn has two career homers off of Perez and one off of Santos.
