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.
