Episode Summary

EDIT
6/9/2008: Ken Griffey Jr.'s 600th Homer
June 9, 2008: Cinncinati Reds 9 at Florida Marlins 4, F -- The Reds blasted four home runs, including one in each of the first three innings. The most historically significant shot came first, with Jerry Hairston at third base after stealing two bases. Up Ken Griffey Jr. got a 3-1 hanging curveball from Marlins starter Mark Hendrickson and deposited it into the right-field seats for his 600th career home run. Griffey became the sixth player in Major League history to reach that plateau. From there, 25-year-old Reds starter Edinson Volquez took over, allowing a season-high three earned runs on three hits while walking five and striking out five, improving to 9-2 on the year with a 1.56 ERA. Griffey wasn't the only one to make history for the Reds on this night; catcher Paul Bako reached his own milestone by notching the first multihomer game of his career. After Griffey made it 2-0 in the first, the Reds got runners on first and second to start the second inning, and Bako delivered with a three-run homer to straightaway center field to make it a five-run game. He then added a two-run shot in the ninth to seal the deal.moreless
