Ken Griffey, Jr., in his first game back after almost a month on the disabled list, just hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th to salvage a game that the Reds had apparently prepared to forfeit as evidenced by letting Rick White pitch.
Griffey whacked the ball, then swaggered his way half-way to first before jogging the rest of the way. I thought he was just being cocky, but then I realized that he was probably saving his legs. That's either a fly out or a home run; no need to strain the titanium.
In St. Louis, the fans demand a curtain call after every home run. The Cincinnati fans are more selective than that, which made Jr.'s tip of the cap all the more meaningful.
