In the bottom of the sixth inning, Ken Griffey Jr. hit his first home run as a Red, and the 399th of his major-league career.

I was at that game. I remember the Reds fell behind by a fairly large margin (six runs I think) but battled back and won the game. IIRC the winning run scored on a throwing error on a bunt attempt. I was pumped to see Griffey hit his first homer with the Reds.

I wonder if a pitcher has ever had a better MLB debut than what Simpson did? That's really amazing!

I had forgotten that there was a lockout that forced a delayed start to the season. There were so many lockouts/strikes during the 70's,80's and 90's you forget about some of them.
