Bonds Homerun Tracker

Hank Aaron 755

Barry Bonds 745

Babe Ruth 714

San Francisco (17-15) slugger Barry Bonds hit homerun number 745 Tuesday, a solo shot in the fourth to provide the Giants’ lone run, as they lost 4-1 to the New York Mets (20-12). Bonds is now just 10 shy of tying Hank Aaron’s all-time mark of 755, but not after an outspoken Curt Schilling accused Bonds of taking steroids, among cheating on his wife and taxes. In the fourth inning, Bonds launched the first pitch he saw off Tom Glavine (4-1) just over the wall to dead center field, hitting his first career homerun in 33 at-bats against Glavine. He finished the game 1 for 3 with a strikeout. At current season’s pace, Bonds is expected to tie the record on June 9.

For the season, Bonds is hitting .338 with an NL-leading 11 homeruns, 23 RBI and tied for a major league-leading 31 walks.

  1. Screw June 9. Imagine him breaking the record off of Curt Schilling after all that. The two teams meet for a June 15-17 series.
