Club a Cub

The Cubbies got the best of the Reds but Dunn did manage four extra base hits, including a homer off of Scott Eyre, in 12 at bats during the series.

The Reds travel to Houston now for a three game set. Wandy Rodriguez, Fernando Nieve and Roy Oswalt will start for the Astros.

Dunn has not had tremendous success at Minute Maid Park, despite it being a bit of a hitter's paradise. Dunn has hit 94 homers since the last one he hit at Minute Maid. Of the pitchers above, Oswalt is the only one who has given up a homer to Dunn, his thirteenth career homer back in 2001.

Nieve is Spanish for snow. Dunn has four home runs in his career off of Josh Fogg. Perhaps Dunn will fare well against another water-based last name. He also has four off of Woody Williams, so there could be a positive first name connection going on with Senor Rodriguez (Dunn has one homer off of Felix Rodriguez).
