Hello and happy Wednesday.

With any luck, there will actually be San Francisco Giants baseball again today. And there’s good news for the Giants on the pitching front.

An MRI on Kevin Gausman — who was scratched from a scheduled start on Sunday due to elbow soreness — came back negative. There’s no structural damage, and the Giants anticipate that Gausman will start during the upcoming weekend series against the Oakland A’s.

As for the two-game series on Wednesday and Thursday against the Seattle Mariners? It’ll be Drew Smyly and Tyler Anderson, in that order.

It would seem that Trevor Cahill has lost his spot in the rotation.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Of course.

September 16, 1996: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 2nd inning off of Scott Sanders. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, but they would lose 2-1 in 11 innings. It was his 40th homer of the year.

September 16, 2002: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 7th inning off of Jesse Orosco, scoring Kenny Lofton. It cut the Giants deficit to 6-5, but they would lose 7-6. It was his 44th homer of the year.

September 16, 2003: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 5th inning off of Adam Eaton. It gave the Giants a 4-0 lead, and they would win 4-2. It was his 43rd homer of the year.

September 16, 2005: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Brad Penny. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 5-4 (beat LA). It was his 1st homer of the year.
