It's been a while -- and almost
Ken Griffey Jr. went into Tuesday night without a homer in his last 83 at-bats. That's the longest streak since he went 101 at-bats from 5/22-6/20, 1990.
He's up to 85 now. He singled in the first tonight. In his second at-bat, Griffey nearly ended the drought. But center fielder Matt Kemp made a leaping catch at the wall. That's the second time he's been robbed since his last homer. Felix Pie got him at home on May 5.
