Reds 8, Rangers 4
Reds starter Aaron Harang allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. (Al Behrman/AP)
 Griffey's two-run homer
 Ross' three-run homer
With all eyes on Sammy Sosa's pursuit of 600 career homers, Reds star Ken Griffey Jr. stole the spotlight, going deep twice for career home runs Nos. 580 and 581. Catcher David Ross also homered twice and Adam Dunn connected on his 17th of the season.
