 EDS: UPDATES with Bonds' third at-bat; WILL be UPDATED.
By The Associated Press
Alex Rodriguez and Tom Glavine had chances to reach personal milestones Tuesday night and didn't. A later start meant Barry Bonds still had his shot at baseball history.
Bonds remained one home run shy of tying Hank Aaron's record at 755 as the San Francisco Giants visited the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Bonds, facing Dodgers ace Brad Penny, popped out in his first at-bat, was intentionally walked in the third and walked in the sixth.
Rodriguez was one homer short of 500 and he didn't reach it even though the Yankees tied a franchise record with eight home runs in a 16-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
A-Rod, who turned 32 on Friday, is bidding to break Jimmie Foxx's record (32, 338 days) as the youngest to reach 500.
Glavine's chance at win No. 300 evaporated when the Mets' bullpen couldn't hold a lead.
Glavine pitched six-plus innings and left with a 2-1 lead over Milwaukee. But his chance at becoming the 23rd member of the 300-win club was ended when Bill Hall doubled down the left-field line off Guillermo Mota to tie the game in the eighth inning.
Rodriguez, who went 0-for-5, at least provided a souvenir when he flipped his bat toward a boy sitting behind the dugout after his final at-bat.
