SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds praised his teammates for their clutch play while he's been busy walking all season, then watched them go out and do most of the work Tuesday night.
Pedro Feliz matched his career high with four runs batted in, and Brett Tomko won his sixth consecutive decision in the San Francisco Giants' 9-2 victory over the Houston Astros.
Bonds, who had two days to rest after being held out of the lineup Sunday and getting a team day off Monday, drove in a run to help the Giants win for the eighth time in nine games but also was plunked in the right shin by Houston reliever Russ Springer in the eighth.
San Francisco ended Houston's four-game winning streak to maintain a half-game lead in the National League wild-card race over the Chicago Cubs. The Astros dropped two games back.
