 CINCINNATI (AP) -Ken Griffey Jr. hit the 586th homer of his career in the fifth inning Friday night, tying Hall of Famer and former Reds star Frank Robinson for sixth place on the career list.
Griffey hit Micah Owings' 0-1 pitch 419 feet into the right-center field seats for his 23rd home run of the season, giving the Reds a 6-0 lead and leaving the Reds right fielder one behind Adam Dunn for the team lead. He is four short of the 27 he hit all of last season.
Texas right fielder Sammy Sosa went into the Rangers' game against Baltimore Friday night in fifth place with 602 homers.
Robinson hit the first 324 home runs of his career in 10 seasons with the Reds before being traded to Baltimore after the 1965 season.
Griffey got off to a slow start this year, missing most of spring training because he was still recovering from a broken left hand. He has been slowed during the season by an inflamed digestive tract and inflammation around his lungs.
