If it seems like it's been a while since Adam Dunn has recorded multiple RBIs in a game, that's because it has been. Dunn put up five RBIs against the Seattle Mariners Friday night, a feat he hasn't accomplished since September 2010 when he was with the Washington Nationals. Last year when he signed a four year multi-million dollar deal with the White Sox, he only put up 11 homers and hit .159 on the season. Friday he had two homers to complement his five RBIs and three hits on four at bats for a .256 average so far this season. He drove in Alejandro De Aza in the first inning to put the Sox on the board and Alex Rios hit a sacrifice fly to score Brent Morel giving the Sox a 2-0 lead. From there it was all Adam Dunn with a three-run homer in the second and a solo shot in the eighth to give the Sox a 7-3 victory. Chris Sale was on the mound for the Sox and struck out 11 in 6 1/3 innings and gave up only three runs.
