 History will have to wait at least one more day.
Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez and Tom Glavine had chances to reach milestones Tuesday night and didn't.
Bonds remained one home run shy of tying Hank Aaron's record at 755 as he went 0-for-2 and walked twice as the San Francisco Giants visited the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was removed for a pinch-runner after reaching on an error by Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal in the seventh.
Rodriguez was one homer short of 500 and he stayed stuck there 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.
``I'm sure if you polled everybody in baseball who didn't see the game and saw eight home runs being hit, they would have guessed that Alex hit two or three of them,'' Yankees manager Joe Torre said.
Glavine's chance at win No. 300 evaporated when the Mets' bullpen couldn't hold a lead at Milwaukee.
``It's a disappointing night,'' Glavine said. ``Either way it's a disappointing end to the game for us.''
The lefty pitched six-plus innings and left with a 2-1 lead over the Brewers. But Glavine's 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. The Mets lost 4-2 in 13 innings.
His next shot will come against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Sunday.
``I'd much rather go in there looking for No. 301.''
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.
Each time he batted, flashes popped throughout Yankee Stadium.
``They took pictures of the wrong guy tonight,'' Rodriguez said.
Oh well. There's always tomorrow.
