Adam Dunn, who got hit by a fifth-inning pitch on the right elbow, has a nasty bruise to show for it. But the first baseman believes he'll be able to play tomorrow.
Dunn left the game with a right elbow contusion in the seventh inning after Wandy Rodriguez drilled him in the fifth. He fired a wild throw into the outfield in the seventh inning, which didn't do any damage after Justin Maxwell backed it up. But as soon as Dunn readied to throw the ball, he realized he didn't have feeling in his hand.
He said after the game that the feeling had returned to his hand, and though he called it "the worst pain I've ever had in baseball," Dunn said he should be fine for Thursday's game.
Manager Jim Riggleman wouldn't commit to it, though; he said he'd make out two lineups - one with Dunn and one without him.
