CINCINNATI (AP) -Ken Griffey Jr. tied Harmon Killebrew for eighth place on the home run list Tuesday, hitting the 573rd of his career.
The 37-year-old outfielder hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning, the Cincinnati Reds' first hit off Washington's Matt Chico. His drive to right field off a 2-2 pitch barely cleared the wall.
Griffey is 10 homers behind Mark McGwire for seventh on the list.
With the two-run homer, Griffey also moved ahead of Ernie Banks into 18th place on the career RBIs list with 1,637. Next is former Reds first baseman Tony Perez at 1,652.
It was Griffey's second homer in two games, and his eighth in 14 games since he moved back to his accustomed No. 3 spot in the batting order. Griffey hit fourth or fifth earlier in the season.
Griffey has 10 homers in all, one behind Adam Dunn for the team lead.
