SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Freddy Sanchez climaxed a six-run eighth inning with a two-run single Friday night as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for an 8-7 win over San Francisco.

Barry Bonds hit his third home run in what has been a big week, running his MLB record career total to 758. He broke the all-time mark of Hank Aaron Tuesday.

The Pirates, however, came back from a 7-2 deficit with their big inning.

Vinnie Chulk coughed up the lead as the Pirates got four straight singles, a sacrifice fly from Jack Wilson and a double by Nate McLouth that tied the contest. Sanchez then came through to put the Pirates in front.

Reliever John Grabow (2-1) got the win, escaping a seventh-inning jam, and Matt Capps went the final two innings for his 10th save.
