    Funny quote by Dunn on Griffey



    Dunn also provided the game's most dramatic swing, hitting the fourth-longest homer in Great American Ball Park's four seasons. His solo shot in the sixth off John Grabow landed on a concourse by the smokestacks in center field.

    According to Reds employees, the ball bounced out of the park and hit a car driving on a street. The car stopped, a person got out and retrieved the ball, and the car drove away.

    "I ain't paying," Dunn said, joking about damage to the car.

    Dunn has hit the only homer that left Great American on the fly _ a 535-foot shot in 2004 that cleared the batter's eye and landed on the street, then came to rest on a piece of driftwood in the Ohio River.

    "I don't watch them too much," Dunn said. "They all count the same, whether they go front row like (Ken Griffey) Junior's or 500 feet."

    One might wonder if Junior was standing next to him as that was being said.
