CHICAGO, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- White Sox slugger Adam Dunn decided to change it up Tuesday night and pitch against the Texas Rangers, nearly hitting shortstop Elvis Andrus.

Andrus jumped out of the way just in time, but it was a close call. Dunn was pitching sinkers in the 80 mph range, with only two hits, a walk and a run.
