CINCINNATI (AP) -- Ken Griffey Jr. remained one homer shy of 600,
but Jay Bruce had a solo shot and a run-scoring single Sunday,
completing his amazing debut week and leading the Cincinnati Reds
to a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
Rookie right-hander Johnny Cueto (4-5) returned to his
first-game form, allowing only a bunt single through the first six
innings against a team that can't do anything right on the road.
Mark Teixeira and Brian McCann homered off Cueto in the seventh,
but the comeback stopped there -- again.
The Braves have been nearly unbeatable at Turner Field, going
22-7. Away from home, it's nearly the identical opposite. Atlanta
is 7-21 on the road, where it has lost its last 20 one-run games
