BOSTON (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 748th career home run Sunday to move within seven of tying Hank Aaron's career record.
The San Francisco slugger connected on a 1-0 pitch from Tim Wakefield to lead off the sixth inning, lining a shot into the Giants bullpen. It was his 14th of the season and first since June 11.
Fans booed when Bonds stepped to the plate, cheered briefly when the ball went over right fielder J.D. Drew's outstretched glove and then resumed booing as Bonds circled the bases.
Bonds, 42, had never played in Boston before Friday night. Fenway Park is the 36th different ballpark in which he's homered, and Wakefield is the 441st pitcher to surrender one of his homers.
