DUNN SETS STRIKEOUT RECORD

From Elias: Adam Dunn went 1-for-4 with one RBI in the White Sox' victory at Seattle, but it was his first-inning strikeout that caught our attention. Dunn became the first player to strike out at least once in each of his team's first 15 games of a season since they began tracking strikeouts for individual batters in 1910. Dunn surpassed the mark of Howie Gross, who whiffed in each of Houston's first 14 games in 1963.


Dunn compared to "The Howie Goss?" funny stuff
