Notes: Dunn’s golden sombrero on Thursday was his second of the season (and second in the past week), and lowered his slash lines to a rotten .186/.314/.346. Mired in a season-long slump, Dunn currently leads the MLB with 65 strikeouts in 45 games, and actually has more whiffs than total bases (54). Who would have guessed that a quarter of the way through the 2011 season, Dunn’s performance would make Mark Reynolds’ .200/.305/.381 seem desirable? In honor of last sombrero, I noted how the big man had not collected a hit off a left-hander in 31 at-bats. Well, it’s now up to 33 at-bats, 15 of which have ended in a strikeout.
Total 2011 Sombreros: 29
