 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds added another home run to his record count Friday night, connecting for No. 758 in the third inning off former teammate Matt Morris of Pittsburgh.
Bonds sent a 3-2 pitch into the right-field arcade for a two-run shot, giving the San Francisco Giants a 3-1 lead over the Pirates. The fan who retrieved the ball was quickly whisked away so the ball could be authenticated.
Fans jumped to their feet as Bonds made his third home-run trot this week in the club's waterfront ballpark. He broke Hank Aaron's record with No. 756 on Tuesday, then had a splash-hit homer into McCovey Cove for his 757th the very next night.
It was his first career homer off Morris, who became the 448th different pitcher to give up a homer to Bonds. Morris was dealt to the Pirates at the trading deadline.
The 43-year-old Bonds received a standing ovation when he came out to play left field in the top of the fourth and he tipped and waved his cap with his left hand.
