Hello and happy Sunday.

The San Francisco Giants alternate training site in Sacramento has increased in number. Last week the Giants designated catcher Rob Brantly for assignment, after the backup catcher had played only one game. It was a necessary move to make room for Chadwick Tromp, who was finally healthy and ready to join the active roster.

Brantly cleared waivers, and has been reassigned to Sacramento.

The Giants now have four catchers at the alternate training site: Brantly, Joey Bart, Patrick Bailey, and Chris Herrmann.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yep. A lot.

August 2, 1994: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit 3 home runs. A 2-run shot in the 3rd inning off of Pete Schourek scored Steve Scarsone and cut the Giants deficit to 3-2. A solo blast in the 5th inning off of Schourek tied the game 4-4. And a solo home run in the 9th inning off of Hector Carrasco cut the deficit to 9-7, which was the final score. The were his 33rd, 34th, and 35th homers of the year.

August 2, 1997: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 6th inning off of Brett Tomko. It cut the Giants deficit to 2-1, and they would lose 5-1. It was his 28th homer of the year.

August 2, 1998: Against the Philadelphia Phillies, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 2nd inning off of Mike Welch. It gave the Giants a 5-0 lead, and they would win 15-3. It was sandwiched between dingers by Ellis Burks and Jeff Kent, giving the Giants back-to-back-to-back homers. It was his 21st of the year.

August 2, 2000: Against the Milwaukee Brewers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 4th inning off of Jamey Wright, scoring Bill Mueller. It gave the Giants a 2-1 lead, but they would lose 6-4. It was his 34th homer of the year.
