The Donkey Strikes Back

May 15 at Minnesota


Today's Game Rating:
5 STARS
One star for each of Adam Dunn's RBIs in today's game.

Short Take: Adam Dunn hits two home runs to spark the White Sox to a 9-4 rout of Minnesota.

Stop the presses! Adam Dunn actually had a huge game Wednesday afternoon! "The Big Donkey" went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double and five RBIs to lead the White Sox to an easy 9-4 victory over the crappy, perpetual losers from Minnesota.

How did Dunn do it? Well, he remembered it is legal to hit the ball to all fields. Both home runs went to center field. The double was crushed straight over the head of Minnesota left fielder Josh Willingham. Imagine that, Dunn got out of pull mode and suddenly started having success. His batting average is now all the way up to .156!

The Sox actually trailed 2-0 early in this game as starter Dylan Axelrod allowed single runs in each of the first two innings. But Dunn evened the score in the top of the third with the first of his two two-run homers.

Dayan Viciedo put the Sox ahead 3-2 in the fourth with a solo shot to the opposite field. The South Siders added two more in the fifth off Minnesota loser Mike Pelfrey (3-4). Dunn's double and a sacrifice fly from Viciedo produced the runs, which gave the Sox a 5-2 lead.

But Axelrod (1-3) was living dangerously all day. Three times in the first five innings, Minnesota had two men on with nobody out. Somehow, Axelrod managed to limit the Twins to just one run out of those three prime scoring opportunities. The Sox right-hander ran out of gas in the sixth, when he left the game after issuing a one-out walk. Reliever Matt Lindstrom had his problems, allowing two straight hits and an RBI groundout that produced two runs for Minnesota. The Twins were within one at 5-4.

No matter. The Sox answered in the top of the seventh. With two on and two out, Jeff Keppinger (yes, Jeff Keppinger) hit a shot down the third-base line that got through Minnesota infielder Eduardo Escobar for a two-run double that restored the Sox to a three-run lead at 7-4.

Dunn capped the scoring in the eighth with his second two-run homer of the game. Matt Thornton, Nate Jones and Brian Omogrosso combined for 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, and the Sox left Minnesota having won two of the three games in the series.

Up next, a trip to the West Coast for a four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Sox left-hander Jose Quintana (2-1, 3.72) ERA will get the start in the series opener Thursday night. He'll be opposed by right-hander Jerome Williams (2-1, 3.06 ERA). Game time is 9:05. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

WSI's
Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
I'll tell you what, Stone Pony, I haven't seen a left-handed hitter swing the bat as well as Adam Dunn did today since 1967. You know who won the triple crown that year? YAZ! Two thumbs up!
