CHICAGO -- It's a lower abdominal strain and Griffey will return to Cincinnati instead of going to San Francisco.
"You guys know as much as I do," Griffey said.
Griffey said he didn't remember anything after the initial shock of pain. He said he knew he threw it, but not sure where.
"The best way I can describe it is it felt like somebody bungee jumped off my right nut," Griffey said.
Griffey said his groin area had been bothering him for a couple of weeks, but it was something he has been playing through.
"It’s been a little sore for a while," Griffey said. "But it’s the situation where the games don’t mean anything for us, but you’ve got to go out there and try to finish strong and hopefully make it hard on other teams. That’s what we were trying to do. I knew I wasn’t going to play much over the next week until Chicago came back (to Cincinnati). It was just one play."
Adam Dunn said he's surprised more people haven't gotten hurt at Wrigley because the outfield is in such bad shape.
"That outfield is dangerous. I’m surprised more people don’t get injured out there. It’s as bad as there is. It’s worse than playing in a parking lot," Dunn said. "It looked like they had a monster truck rally. There’s potholes. It’s bad. It’s unsafe."
