Griffey's ill, lineup
Ken Griffey Jr.'s been battling the flu for the last few days. He's out of the lineup. Here it is:
Heard Doc say last night on Extra Innings that Aaron Harang tweaked his back catching a throw to the mound from David Ross. Harang said Thursday afternoon that was not the case. "I was tired from throwing so many pitches in the fourth and fifth (innings)," said Harang Thursday. "I went to Jerry and told him it would be best (that I come out) because the bullpen had been so good." Found out today that came from someone who would know. Don't know why the Reds didn't reveal that. Asked Jerry Narron if Harang was OK after the game last night. He gave the "situation of game dictated it" answer.
