SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 738th career home run Wednesday night, a solo shot in the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals that tied the game at 5.
The 42-year-old San Francisco slugger moved within 18 homers of breaking Hank Aaron's all-time record of 755 with his fourth homer of the season.
Bonds connected after going 0-for-1 with a walk, popup and sacrifice fly in his three previous three plate appearances.
He splashed a home run into McCovey Cove for the 33rd time - and did so against right-hander Ryan Franklin, who became the 437th different pitcher to surrender a home run to the seven-time NL MVP.
T Park jumped to their feet and chanted ``Barry! Barry!'' as he began another trot around the bases with ``738'' flashing on the main center-field scoreboard. Some bowed to him over the left-field fence as he walked out to play defense in the top of the ninth.
