Dunn collected three RBIs on Wednesday for his first multi-RBI game since July 26. Then his biggest night offensively in almost two years came Friday, when he collected five RBIs on the strength of two home runs and a double. It's the first time Dunn has had five RBIs in a game since Sept. 24, 2010, and the first time he's recorded an RBI in three straight games since May 18-20 of last season.
"[Hitting coach] Jeff [Manto] is always thinking about new drills, and he came up with another drill that, I thought it was kind of crazy," Dunn said. "I was doing it, but when we started doing it, I started feeling getting my balance back and stuff like that."
One of the drills Dunn has been doing is taking swings in the batting cage with a medicine ball between his legs. The exercise is designed to keep a batter from lunging out in front of a pitch.
"All hitters do different drills to keep an eye and keep track, and that's one of his," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "If he [keeps having] those kinds of swings, with his ability to walk, it sets up pretty nice with just seeming like we always have guys on base."
