Adam Dunn Hits 300th Home Run
Adam Dunn today blasted his 22nd home run of the season and 300th of his career leading his team to a 5-3 victory over the Braves. Dunn and fellow teammate, Ryan Zimmerman, have been the lone players to watch for the lowly nationals, who are 23-55 on the season.
Dunn, who is 29 years young, is the 5th player in major league history to reach the 300 home run mark in less than 4,200 at-bats. The others are Babe Ruth, Mark McGwire, Ralph Kiner and Harmon Killebrew, not a bad class to join. Dunn has hit 40+ home runs six straight seasons and will more than likely hit that mark for his seventh consecutive season in 2009.
