Hello everyone, and happy Monday. I hope you have a great week ahead of you.
Thanks to those of you who watched and joined the gamethreads. They gave us some baseball for the last few months, and took us to within 10 days of actual live (tentative) baseball.
I’m reminiscing a bit about 2010, 2012, and 2014. It was fun to rewatch so many games. They felt so recent, and also so far away.
I was trying to figure out my favorite moment, but I completely failed. Maybe you’ll do better than I did. What was your favorite memory from the World Series runs?
Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?
Why yes he did.
July 13, 1996: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 6th inning off of Hideo Nomo. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 7-0 (Beat LA). It was his 24th homer of the year.
July 13, 1997: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning off of Dennys Reyes, scoring Stan Javier. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, but they would lose 9-3. It was his 21st homer of the year.
July 13, 2000: Against the Oakland A’s, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Mark Mulder. It gave the Giants a 2-1 lead, and they would win 4-2. It was his 29th homer of the year.
Have a wonderful Monday, everybody.
