Junior socks it to 400th victim
Ken Griffey Jr. added Rangers right-hander Tommy Hunter to his long list of home run victims.
Hunter became the 400th big-league pitcher to surrender a home run to Junior, who sent a full-count pitch onto the grass in center field for a three-run homer in the first inning. It was Griffey’s 11th of the season (the first since July 1 against the Yankees in New York) — and 622nd of his career.
The blast also scored Ichiro Suzuki and Jose Lopez, who were aboard via a single and walk, respectively.
