The Day in Homers!

Ken Griffey Jr hit his 599th career home run, but it was his team mate Jay Bruce who hit his first career home run to win the game. The Cincinnati Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 8-7 in 11 innings. Jay Bruce won an award last year as the Minor League Player of The Year, if he continues to play well he might add rookie of the year. I know it is early to talk about that award, since Bruce just arrived in the majors. However in 5 games he is hitting .579 with 1 home run, 11 hits, 3 doubles, 4 RBIs, and 8 runs.

Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox hit his 500th career home run. The Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-3.

All in all a good day for baseball.
