Here is a remarkable stat.
When Adam Dunn batted in the fourth inning a few moments ago, with runners on first and third and two outs, Dunn was just one for 30 batting this year with runners in scoring position and two outs. That is an average of .033.
Now he is 2 for 31.
Dunn ripped a 3-2 pitch that was just inside the right-field line and it went for a two-run double. Dunn has 4 RBI to tie his season high as the Nats lead the O’s 6-0 in the last of the fourth.
After giving up four runs over 13 innings in his first two starts, Arrieta has now allowed 12 runs over seven innings in these past two starts.
Dunn also knocked in four runs on May 31st vs. Houston.
