With two men on, and first base open, L.A. wouldn’t pitch to Bonds. They walked him to first, to load the bases. That was the right thing to do, even though L.A. is out of the Pennant race.

Then, as if it were an instant replay of one of many Jeff Kent at-bats in this week’s series against Houston, he came to bat, and cleared the bases, only to be out at third on a bad call. That’s the way it goes… Giants are within one at the bottom of the fifth…

71 wasn’t enough. Barry just hit #72, having now hit a home run in each of his last three at-bats. One more, and he will have tied the all-time record for most consecutive at bats, hitting a home run…

CNET: The Internet’s greatest test. “Eventually, the phone system around New York City could not handle any more calls because all the circuits were in use. Although Internet service may degrade under large loads, it tends to spread the loads evenly across all sessions rather than shutting a large number of users out.”
