Hello. Happy Monday.

Baseball is nearly back, and even though I don’t think it should be coming back, I’m finding myself excited about baseball for the first time since March.

Which means I’m suddenly very excited to watch highlights on YouTube of great Giants moments.

Two of my favorite moments? Tim Lincecum’s very surprising pair of no-hitters, when he was well past his prime.

I rewatch all 27 outs with great regularity. I’ll do so right now. I think you should join me.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yup.

June 29, 1996: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Joey Hamilton. It gave the Giants a 3-0 lead, but they would lose 7-6. It was his 21st homer of the year.

June 29, 1997: Against the Colorado Rockies, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Roger Bailey. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and they would win 7-4. It was his 19th homer of the year.

June 29, 2000: Against the Colorado Rockies, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Masato Yoshii. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, but they would lose 11-4. It was his 28th homer of the year.

June 29, 2003: Against the Oakland A’s, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Barry Zito. It cut the Giants deficit to 6-1, and they would win 8-7. It was his 22nd homer of the year.

June 29, 2007: Against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 8th inning off of Livan Hernandez. It tied the game 3-3, and the Giants would lose 4-3 in 10 innings. It was his 16th homer of the year.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday.
