Adam Dunn has played against Albert Pujols long enough to provide perspective on the Angels slugger's hitting woes.

"We're definitely two totally different beasts," Dunn said Monday night of Pujols, who was batting .196 with one home run and 12 RBIs entering Monday. "This would be kind of like if it happened to Paul (Konerko). That's the hitter that Paul is. That's a good way to translate it.

"It's shocking, but to me, it just means he's such an unbelievably good player that it's not if, it's when. It probably means 30 homers and 100 RBIs is going to come a little sooner."
