Adam Dunn went for 3-4 with two homers, a double and five RBI on Friday night in a 7-3 win over the Seattle Mariners in what is almost certainly the best game to-date in Dunn's baffling Chicago White Sox career. With Dunn providing ample run support, starter Chris Sale threw a stellar ballgame, striking out 11 Mariners while allowing three earned runs in 6.1 innings.
The White Sox jumped on Seattle and starter Hector Neosi early, putting up six runs in the game's first two innings, with the big blast coming in the form of a three run homer from Dunn in the top of the second that plated Alejandro De Aza and Brent Morel. The White Sox would be blanked until the eighth, with Seattle closing the gap to 6-3, before Dunn too Hisashi Iwakuma deep to pump the lead up to four, where it would stick for the remainder of the game.
The two will take the field tomorrow at 3:05 p.m. CT, with Phillip Humber opposing Blake Beavan.
