Nats Vs. Bonds Round 2
Game 2 Nationals vs. Giants
In a very exciting game for the most part, the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 8-6 in game 2 of 4. Felipe Lopez got things started for the Nats when he solo homered in the top of the 3rd putting the Nats on the scoreboard with 1 run to the Giants 2. Then a few batters later Austin Kearns hit a 2 run homer bringing in Ronnie Belliard putting the Nats on top 3-2. Brian Schneider Homered in the 4th to tie the game 4-4, The Nats would score 4 more in the 8th.
OK now for that Bonds fellow. In the bottom of the first, to the disappointment of the Giants fans Bonds only Doubled, he would then be brought home by Bengie Molina. Bond's second at bat came in the 3rd and again to the collected sighs of the Giants fans he only got a single. He would again score this time on the 2 run homer by the guy behind him in batting order, Bengie Molina. This brought the Giants in the lead 4-3. Oh yeah then in the 5th on a full count of 3 balls and 2 strikes with nobody on base, he knocked #756 over 400 feet deep center off of Mike Bacsik to put the Giants in the lead again 5-4. He then started to take the field at the top of the 6th but came out.
Finally the "Chasing Aaron's Record" is over, we can all get on with our lives, and enjoy baseball again. After the media circus stopped the game in it's tracks and Barry gave his heartfelt speach the game resumed and got back to business as usual. The question is will Bonds be in the lineup tomorrow night? Who knows? Will anybody be paying attention when he hits number 757?
