Redleg Nation is pleased to name Ken Griffey, Jr., our RN Player of the Month for June. This is the second consecutive month that Junior has won the award.
In June, Griffey continued his hot hitting, slugging 10 HR with 19 RBI, and posting solid rate statistics as well: .290 batting average, .367 on-base percentage, and a jaw-dropping .645 slugging percentage. He led the Reds in HR and SLG, and tied with Adam Dunn for the team lead in RBI.
To cap it off, Junior returned to his familiar spot as a starter in the All-Star Game.
Congratulations to Ken Griffey, Jr., who won over a pretty good selection of Reds who had a decent June:
Aaron Harang: 5 G 2-0 32.2 IP 26 H 32 K 1.10 WHIP 2.76 ERA
