    Griffey swats career homer No. 599

    CINCINNATI -- Ken Griffey Jr. is on the doorstep of career home run No. 600. In the first inning of Saturday afternoon's game at Great American Ball Park, Griffey connected on a 3-1 pitch from Braves right-hander Jair Jurrjens and sent it sailing 380 feet into the right-field Sun Deck.

    The 599th home run of Griffey's career, which followed Jay Bruce's single, put the Reds ahead 2-0.

    Jurrjens is the 383rd pitcher off of whom Griffey has homered.
    It was Griffey's second home run since snapping a 90-at-bat homerless streak on May 22 at San Diego.

    With his next home run, Griffey will become just the sixth player in Major League history to collect 600 career home runs.
