SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 745th career home run Tuesday night, moving within 10 of Hank Aaron's record 755.
The San Francisco slugger connected on the first pitch from New York's Tom Glavine for a solo shot over the center-field wall with one out in the fourth, pulling the Giants within 4-1 on his 11th homer of the season. He rounded the bases as ``745'' flashed on the main scoreboard.
The seven-time NL MVP tipped his hat as he walked out to his spot in left field in the top of the fifth to a standing ovation.
It was Bonds' fourth career homer off Glavine and the first in 10 years against the left-hander - since an inside-the-park homer April 23, 1997, at Candlestick Park when Glavine was with the Atlanta Braves.
The 42-year-old Bonds homered on May 8 for the first time in his career, leaving Aug. 5 and Sept. 30 as the only days in the regular season he has yet to hit one out.
