Hank Aaron 755
Barry Bonds 739
Babe Ruth 714
San Francisco Giants (8-8) slugger Barry Bonds hit homer No. 739 in a 1-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks (10-9), moving within 16 of Hank Aaron’s all-time mark of 755. In the top of the 2nd, Bonds broke the scoreless tie by blasting a solo shot to center off right-handed Edgar Gonzalez. It would be the only run the Giants needed as Bonds wasn’t the only Barry to come up big for his squad. Barry Zito looked like his former Cy Young-self as he pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings, fanning 5 D-Backs in the process.
For the season, Bonds is hitting .349 with 5 home runs, 11 RBI and 11 walks.
