Adam Dunn was back, and so was the good sound of the ball off Paul Konerko's bat when the White Sox' cleanup hitter is right. Those were two significant, encouraging additions to the lineup Saturday.

Dunn singled, doubled, walked, scored a run and ran the bases well after missing seven games with a strained oblique.

He played first base at the urging of trainer Herm Schneider, who wanted him to keep moving and stay loose.
