SAN DIEGO (AP) Barry Bonds has hit his 755th home run to tie
Hank Aaron's career record.
The 43-year-old Bonds hit a 2-1 pitch off Clay Hensley in the Giants' game against the Padres at Petco Park.
After connecting, Bonds took a half-dozen steps and clapped his hands before jogging around the bases.
The opposite field drive moves the Giants' slugger within one swing of having baseball's pinnacle of power all to himself.
