Bonds passes Mays with homer No. 661

Postby WebHamster » Wed Apr 14, 2004 12:00 am

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds continued his amazing power stroke on Tuesday, belting homer No. 661 to move past his godfather, Willie Mays, into sole possession of third place on the all-time list.

Bonds homered into McCovey Cove for a second straight game against the Milwaukee Brewers at SBC Park, sending the home crowd into another frenzy. This time Bonds belted a 1-2 pitch from righthander Ben Ford into the water with two outs in the seventh inning. The hit over the right-field wall gave the Giants a 4-1 lead.

The 39-year-old Bonds, who owns the single-season home run record of 73, set during the 2001 season, now has only two players standing in front of him. Babe Ruth is second with 714 home runs and Hank Aaron tops the list with 755.
