Byrd had struggled early on in the season, hitting just .163 during the first month.
"It's the toughest time since I turned things back around two years ago," Byrd said. "I've been putting in a lot of time in with [hitting coach] Don Long and things are slowly starting to come around."
Tuesday marked the first time this season that Byrd notched two extra-base hits in one game.
"The home run was exciting and the double in the ninth inning was especially exciting because it's a lot easier to manage a game with a six-run lead than a one-run lead or being down a run," Reds manager Bryan Price said about Byrd.
Johnson hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning, then reached the milestone with a single in the sixth.
