Adam Dunn passes Yastrzemski on HR list

By staff

There was a little bit of history Monday night when Adam Dunn hit a second-inning home run off Clay Buchholz.

With that home run, Dunn passed Boston great Carl Yastrzemski for sole possession of 35th on the all-time home run list with 453. He finished the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored, marking his first multihit performance in 31 career games against the Red Sox, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He entered Monday night with a career .152 batting average against Boston.

Stats & Info also gives us this: Dunn's home run was calculated at 418 feet. Since the start of the 2010 season, Dunn has hit 68 homers at least 415 feet, the most in the major leagues in this time period. Giancarlo Stanton, who made his debut on June 8, 2010, is second with 67, followed by Josh Hamilton and Carlos Gonzalez with 60.
