Bonds hits Two Homers But Giants Lose To Cubs 9-8

Guess the time off must have done him some good! San Francisco Giants outfielder Barry Bonds returned from his respite, with a bang hitting two home runs but it wasn't enough to secure the victory as the Giants fell to the Chicago Cubs 9-8 Thursday afternoon. Bonds hit a solo shot to lead off the second off Cubs starter Ted Lilly that actually hit pavement on Sheffield avenue outside the park, the first time this year a ball has carried that far. Bonds hit a three run job in the seventh off reliever Will Ohman the 443 pitcher in MLB history to give up a long ball to Bonds. The two homers left him at 753 two behind Hank Aaron's MLB record of 755. Bonds had sat out of the starting lineup in the other games of the series.
