MLB remains coronavirus free.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and happy Saturday.

Friday was stupid, just like so many of the days that preceded it. So let me just leave you with some good news: As of Friday, MLB had gone 19 days without a new positive coronavirus test.

The San Francisco Giants had a positive test result last week, but it proved to be a false positive. After a disastrous start, MLB is having good news on the coronavirus front, and that’s a nice thing to see.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Sure.

September 19, 1995: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 6th inning off of Kevin Tapani. It gave the Giants a 7-2 lead, which was the final score (beat LA). It was his 29th homer of the year.

September 19, 1997: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 6th inning off of Joey Hamilton, scoring Bill Mueller. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 7-4. It was his 3rd straight game with a homer, and his 36th of the year.

September 19, 2003: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 7th inning off of Guillermo Mota. It gave the Giants a 6-3 lead, and they would win 6-4 (beat LA). It was his 44th homer of the year.
