Hello and happy Monday. How about those San Francisco Giants, huh? Would you look at them go?

It was a successful opening series for the Giants, but they’ll need to play better to keep on winning. And thankfully reinforcements are coming.

Third baseman Evan Longoria and first baseman Brandon Belt will likely return on Thursday. Manager Gabe Kapler said he expects them back during the upcoming series against the San Diego Padres, and since they’re not eligible to come off the Injured List until the series finale on Thursday, that seems to be the date to target.

That will be quite nice.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yes!

July 27, 2001: Against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Brian Anderson. It tied the game 2-2, and the Giants would win 9-5. It was his 45th homer of the year.

July 27, 2007: Against the Florida Marlins, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Rick van den Hurk. It gave the Giants a 2-1 lead, and they would win 12-10. It was his 20th homer of the year.
