Hello and happy Tuesday. Beat LA.

It’s been two days since the San Francisco Giants DFA’d Hunter Pence, and I’m still sad, even if I get it, and even if it gives me hope in the front office.

So I figured I’d just open the floor for people to talk about Pence, and their favorite memory of him.

Mine? His catch that kept Tim Lincecum’s no-hitter alive.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Obviously.

August 25, 1998: Against the New York Mets, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Rick Reed. It cut the Giants deficit to 3-1, and they would win 7-3. It was his 27th homer of the year.

August 25, 1999: Against the Chicago Cubs, Bonds hit 3 home runs. In the first game of a doubleheader, he hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Kevin Tapani, which gave the Giants a 5-1 lead. A 3-run home run in the 5th inning off of Steve Rain scored Bill Mueller and Russ Ortiz, and extended the lead to 11-1. The Giants would win 11-5.

In the second game of the doubleheader, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 3rd inning off of Jon Lieber. It gave the Giants a 5-0 lead, but they would lose 6-5. They were his 23rd, 24th, and 25th homers of the year.
