Bonds matches a-Mays-ing mark

Postby WebHamster » Mon Apr 12, 2004 6:00 pm

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds continued his ascent up the home run ranks and tied godfather Willie Mays for third on the all-time list with his 660th blast on Monday in SBC Park.

Bonds hit his second home run of the season with a fifth-inning shot off Milwaukee's Matt Kinney in the Giants' home opener. The blast was a three-run shot and gave San Francisco a 5-4 lead with two-out in the frame.

Mays, who was in attendance and has been a mentor to Bonds since the death of his father last summer, had been alone in third on the list since retiring in 1973. Babe Ruth is second with 714 home runs and Hank Aaron tops the list with 755.

Bonds owns the single-season home run record of 73, set during the 2001 season.

The 39-year-old Bonds had a tough off-season, having had to deflect questions about steroid use. His personal trainer was one of four men indicted in February on charges of illegally supplying performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes.
