|2013 Regular Season|
Dunn has been on fire over the last week, going 9 for 25 (.360) with five long balls and 13 RBIs over seven games.
Dunn did not homer after doing so three times in his previous two games.
Dunn hit a pair of two-run shots for his 35th career multihomer game. He's hit three home runs in the last two games and has nine this year. Dunn went 3 for 4 with a walk and still has the third-worst batting average in the majors, at .156, for players with the minimum amount of at-bats. But the White Sox didn't sign him to hit singles, and the 6-foot-6, 285-pound first baseman can still drive the ball with the best of them. Nine of his 20 hits this season are homers.
Dunn entered the game hitting a league-worst .133, and fantasy owners have to know what to expect from the strikeout machine at this point.
Dunn, in a 7-for-70 slide coming in, hit a two-run homer in the sixth off Jeremy Hellickson (1-2) for a 5-2 lead. The White Sox designated hitter went 1 for 4, raising his average to .108.
Dunn hit 41 home runs in 2012 and got 2013 off to a good start.
