Hello and happy Saturday.

I’m guessing by now you’re aware of what happened on Friday. A member of the San Francisco Giants organization tested positive for the coronavirus, and their game against the San Diego Padres was postponed. Saturday’s game was also postponed.

Sunday’s game hasn’t been postponed yet, but you might want to start thinking about alternate ways to spend your afternoon.

Tuesday’s game against the Seattle Mariners is likely the earliest that we see the Giants back in action.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yep.

September 12, 1999: Against the Atlanta Braves, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 8th inning off of Darrin Ebert. It gave the Giants an 8-4 lead, which was the final score. It was his 31st homer of the year.

September 12, 2000: Against the Houston Astros, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 5th inning off of Scott Elarton. It gave the Giants a 6-5 lead, and they would win 9-5. It was his 46th homer of the year.

September 12, 2004: Against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 9th inning off of Mike Koplove. It gave the Giants a 4-2 lead, and Pedro Feliz made it back-to-back home runs, leading to a 5-2 win. It was his 41st homer of the year.
