Barry Bonds homered in his first two at-bats for the second straight game last night, leading the Giants to an 11-1 victory over the Reds.
Bonds, limited this season by an injured elbow and groin, hit solo homers in his first two at-bats off Denny Neagle as the Giants lost to the Reds, 7-4, Friday night.
Last night, he hit a three-run homer in the first inning off Ron Villone and added a two-run shot in the third, giving him four homers in his last six at-bats -- all off left-handers.
It was Bonds's 38th multi-homer game, moving him ahead of Stan Musial, Ted Williams and Juan Gonzalez into 20th place on the career list. Bonds has three multi-homer games this season and 16 homers overall.
With his four homers in the series, Bonds raised his career total in Cincinnati to 28. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt hit 29 in Cincinnati, the most by a visiting player.
Bonds's second homer yesterday was the 427th of his career, moving him one ahead of Billy Williams into 25th place on the career list. Willie Mays (646), Mel Ott (511) and Willie McCovey (469) are the only Giants with more.
