Dunn hits three homers vs Padres

First baseman Adam Dunn became the second player in Nationals history to hit three home runs in a game on Wednesday night. The accomplishment came against the Padres at Nationals Park.

The game was tied at 1 in the first inning when Dunn took Jon Garland’s 1-0 pitch and hit a three-run homer over the left center-field wall to increase the lead to 4-1.

Two innings later, after San Diego cut the lead to 4-2, Dunn took the first pitch from Garland and hit his second home run over the left center-field wall to give Washington a three-run lead.

After the Padres cut the led to 6-5 game in the top of the eighth inning, Dunn came to the plate and in the bottom of the inning and hit his third home run of the game on a 2-2 pitch off left-hander Joe Thatcher. 

The last member of the Nationals to hit three home run in a game was outfielder Alfonso Soriano in 2006.

The Nats should trade Dunn as soon as possible. I know he wants to stay. But they should let him know that he’d be welcome back after the season and the Nats would be stronger for it.
