SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 743rd home run Wednesday night, moving within 12 of Hank Aaron's career record.
Bonds hit a two-run shot to right field in the fourth inning against the Colorado Rockies, his ninth homer of the year. The San Francisco Giants slugger connected on the first pitch from Jeff Francis with one out.
The 42-year-old Bonds rounded the bases as ``743'' flashed on the main center-field scoreboard and fans jumped to their feet. His home run made it 2-0.
It was Bonds' second career homer off Francis. The seven-time NL MVP waved his cap to the crowd when he came out to play left field in the top of the fifth.
