Bonds Held Out Of Wednesday's Game

Barry Bonds played 13 innings Tuesday night and it took its toll.

The San Francisco slugger is not in the Giants' starting lineup tonight against Atlanta. Bonds has 753 home runs, two short of tying Hank Aaron's record.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy says Bonds is getting the night off so he won't need two or three games off later on.

It's a cool, windy summer night in San Francisco. Bonds has said he often has a tough time getting loose when it's chilly.

Bonds turned 43 Tuesday when the Giants lost 7-to-5 in 13 innings. Bonds has two hits in his last 14 at-bats and hasn't homered since last Thursday.
