|Dunn Hits 8th Opening-day HR to Match MLB Record
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Adam Dunn has tied a major league record with his eighth opening-day home run.
Dunn led off the sixth inning for the Chicago White Sox when he pulled a ball into the second deck of seats in right field off Texas starter Colby Lewis.
Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. are the only other major leaguers who have eight homers in openers.
It is the sixth time Dunn has homered in the first game of the season. He twice had two homers on opening day, in 2005 and 2007 while with Cincinnati.
