He's still ending more than half of those ABs with a K. It looks like he's just gotten lucky and crushed a couple of mistake pitches. Small sample size is skewing the data.
Someone mentioned before an 0-2 hit recently that Dunn choked up after he got to 0-2? Does anyone remember if that's the case?
Again, I'm not saying he should become Brett Butler when behind in the count...just change your mindset to go with whatever is given to you. He's shown some success, perhaps it's luck, I'd like to think he's finally adjusting. Time will tell.
