Bonds follows up with 757

August 9, 2007


Giants 5, Nationals 0

San Francisco - Barry Bonds wasted no time adding to his home run record: this time, with a two-run shot into the water for No. 757.

Bonds hit a towering homer into McCovey Cove in the first inning of the San Francisco Giants' 5-0 win against Washington on Wednesday, one night after breaking Hank Aaron's 33-year-old record with his 756th.

Mets 4, Braves 3

New York - Moises Alou hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and Billy Wagner escaped a jam in the ninth.

Astros 8, Cubs 2

Houston - Roy Oswalt pitched six shutout innings and Craig Biggio and Lance Berkman hit solo home runs off Carlos Zambrano as Houston completed a three-game sweep.

Rockies 19, Brewers 4

Denver - Garrett Atkins matched his career high with six RBIs and had four of Colorado's 23 hits as it completed a three-game sweep of slumping Milwaukee.

Reds 1, Dodgers 0

Cincinnati - Ken Griffey Jr. singled home a run and made two rally-killing defensive plays for Cincinnati as Los Angeles was shut out for the third straight game.

Phillies 6, Marlins 4

Philadelphia - Aaron Rowand homered for Philadelphia, which kept Florida's Dontrelle Willis winless in his last 13 starts.

Diamondbacks 10, Pirates 6

Phoenix - Chris Snyder drove in four runs, two on a home run, and Arizona overcame Byung-Hyun Kim's miserable return to the team.
