Never did a 400th career home run feel insignificant as it did Saturday night to Adam Dunn.

"This game was kind of a disaster from the get-go," Dunn said as his monumental home run did little to hide the blemishes stemming from the White Sox's 9-4 loss to the Royals at soggy Kauffman Stadium.

The only positive aspect of the Sox's loss, aside from Dunn's homer, was that they maintained their 11/2-game lead over the Tigers in the American League Central.
