LOS ANGELES (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 741st home run Wednesday night, moving within 14 of Hank Aaron's career record.
With no outs in the first inning, the San Francisco Giants slugger sent a 1-1 pitch from Randy Wolf of the Los Angeles Dodgers into right-center field for his seventh homer of the season. The three-run shot gave the Giants a 4-0 lead.
It was Bonds' first homer off the left-handed Wolf since 1999, and his 29th at Dodger Stadium.
