SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds hit his 740th home run Sunday, connecting for the second consecutive game against the Arizona Diamondbacks and moving within 15 of Hank Aaron's career record.
With two outs in the fourth inning, the San Francisco Giants slugger sent the first pitch from Yusmeiro Petit into the seats in the right-field arcade for his sixth homer of the season.
The 42-year-old Bonds walked out to left field in the top of the fifth to a loud standing ovation, tipping his cap as he made his way to his spot. Fans bowed over the left-field fence.
Petit, called up from Triple-A Tucson before the game to make his second major league start, became the 438th pitcher to give up a homer to Bonds.
