Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has a very unique way of hitting doubles, at least on Friday night in the White Sox 3-2 win against the Houston Astros at US Cellular Field.

Here is the link to video of the double from MLB.com.
Dunn almost hit a home run, but instead the ball bounced off the top of the wall, then bounced off the top of the wall a second time and into the field of play.
It was unique to say the least, and kind of the luck the White Sox would have thus far in 2014.
At least Dunn gained a double out of the hit, and not an out as the Astros were unable to catch the ball in the first place.
Dunn this season, in 79 games, is batting .225 which is better than what he has batted at the the end of the past three seasons. The DH has 14 home runs and 36 RBIs. His on-base percentage is .360, with a slugging percentage of .438.
The double by Dunn was his 15th of the season. All of the 2013 season Dunn had 15 doubles.
Chicago has two more games this weekend with the Astros, then they will host the Kansas City Royals for three games starting Monday.
