Down 15-0 the Chicago White Sox placed Adam Dunn on the mound to start the ninth inning.
Dunn was able to complete the inning allowing two hits, a walk and a run throwing 22 pitches.
“I haven’t laughed on a baseball field like that in a long time, ever since I was probably kicking dandelions, in my early teens,” said White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton of Dunn’s Major League pitching debut. “He had good sink, that’s all I can say. He was 80 mph but he had really good sink.”
“He’s been begging for that for a while,” said White Sox manager Robin Ventura of Dunn taking the mound. “You’ve got to give the fans what they want.”
