CHICAGO (AP) -If Ken Griffey Jr. has his way, he won't be pulled in another double switch.
The Cincinnati Reds right fielder was replaced on defense during a double switch in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Griffey, who has won 10 Gold Gloves, was surprised by interim manager Pete Mackanin's decision.
``I was double-switched for the first time, and the last time,'' a smiling Griffey said Wednesday before making a joke about one of the ``Bad News Bears'' movies. ``If it happens again, I will run around in circles. I'll be like Tanner in the Astrodome.''
Griffey, who ranks sixth on the career list with 590 home runs, was hitting .274 with 27 homers and 74 RBIs going into Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs.
