White Sox Vs. Dodgers Score Update: Dunn Launches Homer Off Kershaw

Adam Dunn's spectacular comeback season continued on Friday night with a two-run homer to right off Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw. Dunn came into the game hitting .183/.298/.465, and Kershaw may be the premier left-handed pitcher in baseball, but if Dunn can do anything it's hit homers, and he was able to connect tonight in the first inning.

The homer scored Gordon Beckham, who reached earlier in the inning on a single to centerfield. Chicago's 2-0 lead did not last long, though, as White Sox starter Chris Sale gave up a run in the bottom of the first on an Elian Herrera double that scored Dee Gordon. Sale was erratic in the first inning, walking two and throwing 26 pitches, but he escaped relinquishing only the single run.
