San Diego - Barry Bonds says the hardest part is over.
The Giants' slugger belted his 755th home run last night in San
Diego, tying Hank Aaron's 33-year-old record.
Bonds hit number-755 on a 2-1 pitch from Clay Hensley. It was an
opposite-field drive that landed in the seats in left-center. Bonds
doesn't think the pitch was a strike saying it was up and away.
When he made contact, Bonds took a half-dozen steps before
clapping his hands and jogging around the bases. Commissioner Bud
Selig stood up, mouth agape, and put his hands in his
pockets while Bonds' family hugged and high-fived. While many fans
stood and cheered Bonds, there were some boos mixed in.
Bonds says he'll not be in the starting lineup for Sunday's
game. The Giants begin a seven-game homestand Monday night against
