Junior History

Ken Griffey Jr. hit a three-run home run in the second inning against the Atlanta Braves tonight. It was 587th of the his career. That means he's hit the most of anyone ever to wear a Reds uniform.

Oscar Villarreal became the 373rd different pitcher on the Griffey homer victim list, the 15th different pitcher this season.
