Barry Bonds moved to within seven of tying Hank Aaron's all time homerun record. He connected on a 1-0 knuckleball from Tim Wakefield that sailed well into the Giants bullpen. So when will teams start pitching around him? I think that although some teams respect Bonds as a player, they do not want to be the team that give up the homerun. And for a pitcher, I do not think any pitcher wants to give up the homerun. Bonds is now batting .287 with 14 HR and 31 RBI for the struggling Giants, who are currently 30-38, ten games out of first.
