Adam Dunn Has An Odd Sense Of Timing

Adam Dunn has the reputation of a home run hitter, which usually leads to a lot of RBIs. He's getting the home runs this year, but the RBIs from those long balls? Not so much. Adam Kilgore took a look at Dunn's statistics, which at this point, are a bit of an anomaly.

That's a bad thing. But what Adam Dunn lacks in timing (hitting his home runs when there are people on base), he makes up for with, ummmm, timing.

But his homers have come at crucial times - 11 of them have also either tied the score or put the Nationals ahead.
