Bonds powers Giants to 10th win in a row. They're now 26-24, and just 1½ games behind the Dodgers and Padres. (Yahoo!)

Marty Cortinas: "I don't want to rain on the parade too much, but the Giants aren't exactly presenting a good case for teams to pitch to Bonds. Behind Barry tonight were Feliz, Pierzynski, Minor, Perez, and the pitcher's spot. Those five slots went 1-for-19 last night, and that hit was Kirk Rueter's." (Across the Seams)

Prospectus Matchups. Jim Baker: "Man! I would have bet anything that Juan Gonzalez would get through 2004 without going on the Disabled List. I’m just shocked and astounded to find him there. What if Gonzalez had been able to assimilate some of Cal Ripken’s DNA back in 1990? How many home runs would he have by now?" (Baseball Prospectus)

Rivals in Exile: Back and Forth. Ben Jacobs and Larry Mahnken on the Red Sox and Yankees. "New York clearly has the easier schedule the rest of the way -- lesser interleague opponents, and fewer games against the tougher AL teams than Boston. But I have to agree -- no offense to the fans of other AL teams, but they're simply not in the class of Boston and New York when they're healthy. It doesn't mean that the pennant is going to go to one of these teams, but a playoff berth looks pretty assured to them both." (The Hardball Times)
