Bonds Continues to Rewrite History, Hits #757


Barry Bonds hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning last night, his second consecutive game with a home run. It was his 23rd home run of the year and provided enough offense for Giants pitcher Matt Cain, who added a home run himself in the fifth inning, as the Giants beat the Nationals 5-0.

Bonds finished the game with 2,916 career hits, only 84 away from 3,000. Already considered the greatest slugger of his generation, if not all time, Bonds has repeatedly said that he would like to reach the 3,000 hit plateau. At this pace, Bonds will have to play next season, which is still up in the air since this is the last year of his current deal. Many have wondered if the Giants are still willing to mortgage the franchise for their superstar and this off-season will definitely tell us one way or the other.
