SAN FRANCISCO, April 12 (UPI) -- San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds hit his 660th career home run Monday against Milwaukee, tying him with Willie Mays for third place on the all-time list.

Bonds hit a 3-1 pitch from righthander Matt Kinney into "McCovey Cove" beyond the right field fence at SBC Park in the fifth inning, a three-run shot that gave the Giants a 5-4 lead.

Mays was in attendance and came on the field with a torch in hand after Bonds reached home plate. Bonds put his arm around his godfather and posed for pictures to commemorate the milestone.

Hank Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714) are the only players ahead of Bonds on the list.
