Griffey walk-off grand slam beats Reds

March 27, 2010 by  

Ken Griffey Jr. came to the plate in the ninth inning facing the Cincinnati Reds, the team he played for in the stint between his stays with Seattle, and with one swing of the bat Junior made a 5-2 game a 6-5 win for the Mariners. The slam was the first homer of the spring for Junior.

The homer overshadowed a very good start by former ASU standout Mike Leake. Leake made his first start of the spring for the Reds and showed why he was worthy of the first round pick in the summer of 2009. Leake lasted four innings allowing only one run on three hits and one walk. Joey Votto got the start in the DH spot for the Reds and went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs.
