Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn has been making his rough 2011 season a distant memory. Gavin Floyd would like to begin doing the same to his seven-start losing streak against the Minnesota Twins.
Floyd will try again to put an end to his skid and lift the White Sox to a season-high fifth consecutive victory Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
The White Sox (21-21) are looking to move above .500 for the first time since May 1 after completing a sweep of the Cubs with a 6-0 victory Sunday.
Dunn and second baseman Gordon Beckham both homered twice in the series, with Beckham raising his batting average 10 points to .207 while Dunn bringing his to .247.
After hitting a career-worst .159 with 11 home runs and 177 strikeouts in 2011, Dunn has hit 14 homers and driven in a team-high 32 runs this year.
''I'm not a big thinker, I have an approach each game and I try to stick with it,'' he said. ''Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.''
