 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 749th career home run Friday night to move within six of tying Hank Aaron's career record of 755.
The San Francisco slugger connected on a 3-2 pitch from Scott Proctor in the eighth inning, hitting a line drive over the fence in right-center. It was his 15th homer of the season, but just his fourth since May 8. Bonds rounded the bases as ``749'' flashed on the main scoreboard.
Proctor was the 442nd pitcher to surrender a homer to Bonds. Bonds has hit two of his homers against the Yankees, also connecting during an interleague series in 2002 in New York.
