SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds became the third player in major league history to hit 700 home runs Friday night.
Bonds reached the milestone with a solo blast in the third inning of San Francisco's meeting with the San Diego Padres.
Bonds hit his 699th homer last Sunday and then went without a home run during a three-game series in Milwaukee earlier this week.
His home run Friday night came off San Diego's Jake Peavy. It was Bonds' 41st of the season.
