Chasing Aaron

June 30, 2007

Hank Aaron surpassed Babe Ruth's home run record of 714 in 1974, and finished with 755. Barry Bonds is closing in on Aaron's record:

* Home runs: 750.

* Needs for record: 6

* Projected date to break record: Saturday, Aug. 4, vs. San Diego

* Next for Giants: vs. Diamondbacks today (Doug Davis)

* Bonds vs. Davis: .500, (5 for 10), 1 home run.



750 and counting...

One inning after a fan came on the field and stood next to him, Barry Bonds connected against Arizona's Livan Hernandez for his 16th homer of the season, leaving him five behind Hank Aaron.
