Even with two teams, especially with two teams, in their city, baseball fans in Chicago have had very little to cheer about this season other than every Sunday reading the Bill Chuck Files in the Chicago Sun-Times.
Yesterday, while the Cubs lost 1-0 to Oakland on a passed ball, the White Sox fans celebrated Adam Dunn, who made a critical 8th inning error, that allowed the tying run to score, recompensed by hitting a walkoff homer in the bottom of the 9th, giving the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the Orioles. It was the ninth walkoff homer of his career and his third hit of the game.
Since May 1, in 54 games, Dunn has hit .234 with 17 homers and 45 RBI. He has raised his average from .141 to .207.
Dunn’s home run was his 23rd of the season and the 429th of his career.
That homer put him in a tie with teammate Paul Konerko for 44th on the all-time homer list.
Up next for Dunn
