Power and speed

After Dunn's game yesterday it was really tempting to start tracking his pursuit of Rickey Henderson. Not for career walks, which has always been a temptation, but stolen bases. Dunn stole two bases in a game for the first time in his career and gave him 50 for his career.

With the benefit of Xavier Nady's glove and the weather, Dunn also hit home run number 201. Dunn hit a fly to center that carried and was caught by Nady but the ball popped out of his glove and over the fence for the home run. This was the sixth game of Dunn's career where he had both a steal and a homer in the same game.

#201 puts Dunn past Oscar Gamble, Bill Freehan and Don Mincher on the career list.
