Making like a turtle

After a slow start in June, Dunn has begun July slowly as well, taking until today, July 9th to hit his second home run of the month. He homered on the 5th of July in the tenth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers for his first of the month.

Even though he has begun two months slowly, Dunn still enters the All-Star break with more home runs than he has had at the All-Star break any of his other seasons. Dunn's 28th homer of the year places him tied for second in the National League with Ryan Howard of the Philadlephia Phillies and behind Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Dunn's homer today was his first at Turner Field in Atlanta since May 26, 2003. Tomorrow I will post when Dunn hit his last home run at each of the National League ballparks.
