Dunn to start Thursday's finale at Coors
DENVER -- White Sox slugger Adam Dunn is doing whatever he can to break out of a season-long slump that has him hitting .173 entering Wednesday's action.

In a simulated-game situation on Wednesday at Coors Field, Dunn took live at-bats against a pair of White Sox Minor League pitchers, aiming to find a rhythm as the club continues its six-game Interleague road trip.

Dunn said he stood at the plate for "probably 50, 60, 70" pitches, while simulating various counts against 6-foot-10 left-hander Garrett Johnson and right-hander Stephen Sauer.

"[The pitchers] were getting the work in, too, so we're trying to simulate at-bats," Dunn said of the practice session. "It's good for all of us."

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said Dunn would be in the starting lineup on Thursday against Rockies right-hander Aaron Cook. Dunn will be slotted into one of the corner outfield spots or at first base.
