POSITION PLAYER PITCHING ALERT! Adam Dunn Pitches The Ninth Inning For Chicago
The White Sox are so bad that they used a position player to pitch on Tuesday. Down 15-0 to the lowly Rangers in the ninth inning, manager Robin Ventura summoned Adam Dunn. Yes, Adam Dunn. He became the first position player to appear in a game for the White Sox since Leury Garcia in mid-April.
His velocity only topped out at 83 mph, but you know what? Statistically speaking, he wasn’t all that terrible. The hefty righty allowed a run-scoring single to Adam Rosales for his only damage of the inning. His final line: 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 0 K.
Check out the movement on this pitch to Adrian Beltre:
If you think that’s whacky, Victor Martinez stole a base in that same game. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Meanwhile, Adam Dunn becomes the 24th pitcher used by the White Sox this year. Nothing against Rich Hill, but I’d rather watch Dunn.

Wondered if Dunn was the weirdest position player-pitcher ever but Dave Kingman pitched TWO INNINGS TWICE in 1973: http://t.co/EG4Ez16lTb

Adam Dunn has now given up more runs (one) this month than he's driven in or scored (none). #anotherclassicAdamDunnstat
