Road to History

Barry Bonds hit his 747th homer and moved within eight of Hank Aaron's career record with a two-run shot during the Giants' 4-3 win over Toronto on Monday night, only the second home run since May 8 for the slugger and his first this month.

Bonds had not hit a HR in 77 AB's since hitting No. 746 back on May 27 vs. the Rockies. In Bonds' previous 36 games from April 29 to June 10, he hit only four homers after hitting 10 by May 5.

On a side note, New York Daily News Sportswriter wrote a column on Throwing Back Barry's ball? Encouraging for whoever catches HR ball No. 756 should throw the ball back in protest.

We all know Barry will not hit No. 756 away from San Francisco. Bochy will sit and limit his AB's until they play at home. Plus, 9 of his current 13 HR's have all come at AT&T Ballpark.
