The Cardinals six-game winning streak is over, but a sellout crowd at Busch Stadium got to witness history on Sunday. Reds outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. smacked career home run No. 500. Griffey hit the historic home run off Cards starter Matt Morris in the top of the sixth inning. Griffey is the 20th player in major league history to reach 500 home runs. He’s the second player in five years to hit No. 500 at Busch Stadium. Mark McGwire hit No. 500 in St. Louis in 1999. The Reds won the game 6-0. Cincinnati scored five runs in the fourth inning. Jason LaRue hit a three-run homer for Cincinnati. The Cardinals lead Chicago by two games in the National League Central, and lead Cincinnati by three games.
