Back to back to back
A couple of solo shots have been hit by Adam Dunn since my last posting. The first was off of Chris Carpenter of the Cardinals a few days ago. The second was yesterday against the Phillies and Brett Myers. Yesterday's was notable in that it was the second time in Dunn's career that his was the middle part of back to back to back home runs.
In the sixth inning yesterday, Dunn's home run was sandwiched by shots by Edwin Encarnacion and Rich Aurilia. Back on October 2, 2005 against the Cardinals, his two teammates that were recently dealt to the Washington Nationals hit the homers that surrounded Dunn's. Felipe Lopez preceded Dunn's blast and then Austin Kearns followed Dunn with a homer.
Dunn passed Hal McRae (191), Carl Furillo and Al Rosen (192).
