Griffey now 6th on career homer list

ATLANTA (AP) — Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 587th home run Monday night, passing Frank Robinson for sixth on the career list.

Griffey’s 24th homer, a three-run shot into the right-field seats at Turner Field, came off Atlanta reliever Oscar Villarreal in the second inning and gave the Reds a 5-0 lead.

Now in his eighth year with Cincinnati, Griffey began the season tied with Reggie Jackson for 10th place with 563 homers.

Griffey played his first 11 years for the Seattle Mariners, hitting 398 homers and winning the 1997 AL MVP.

Texas’ Sammy Sosa ranks fifth on the homer list with 602.
