Get ahead of Dunn and he's done

From the Elias Sports Bureau:

"Adam Dunn hit a home run on an 0-2 pitch Friday, the first time he has done that since hitting an 0-2 homer off Pete Munro on Aug. 30, 2004. Between then and Friday Dunn went 6-for-81 with 63 strikeouts on at-bats with a 0-2 count."

This was Dunn's 187th career homer as a Red, moving him past Vada Pinson into sole posession of 8th place all-time among Reds players. Those ahead of him and the number of games it took for each player to reach 187 homers with the Reds:
