Dunn's 9th inning 2-R HR off of Valverde beats Tigers

Adam Dunn was not of any particular use on a baseball field in 2011, Jose Valverde went the entire regular season without blowing a single save.  I suppose the most emphatic reversal of those results would be Dunn hitting a massive 450+ ft home run off of Valverde to give his team the lead.  And so it happened.

Dunn may not be anyone’s ideal hitter in a clutch situation due to the lack of contact, but when he succeeds, he knows how to put a few exclamation marks at the end.

The blast was so impressive that it coaxed a fun tidbit from Tim McCarver, who noted that the ball landed too far into the stands to be thrown back with one effort.
