While there's still reason to celebrate, Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn displayed disappointment to reporters after hitting his 400th career home run in the team's 9-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night. As CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes writes, Dunn was hoping that his 400th bomb would be part of a winning effort:
It’s the worst-case scenario. We played two bad games. It was just a disaster from the get-go. It’s hard to enjoy. I wish it would have obviously come in a win for sure. That makes anything a lot better.
Even so, Dunn's accomplishment is one worth celebrating, even if he's not especially thrilled. The 32-year-old is the 50th player in MLB history to reach the 400-home run threshold, and given his youth it seems likely that he'll continue his climb up the all-time leaderboards.
