Bruce wins it
Photos
Reds 8, Braves 7
Rookie Jay Bruce is now hitting .579 for the season.  (Al Behrman/AP)
Ken Griffey Jr. was the story early on, when he hit career homer No. 599 in the first inning Saturday, but it was Jay Bruce who stole the show with his walk-off homer in the 10th, his first career dinger. Brandon Phillips hit a solo shot as well.
