Guillen says he won't pinch-hit for Dunn

BALTIMORE -- Despite Adam Dunn's 3-for-78 struggles against left-handed pitchers this season, don't look for manager Ozzie Guillen to pinch-hit for the slugger late in the game.

"I would rather put him on the bench against lefties and give him some time then pinch-hit for him," Guillen said. "I don't know how the team will react. I don't know how Dunn will react.

"In the meanwhile, I think about it a few times. But every time he's at the plate, I think he has a chance. I have confidence and think he's going to do it."
