SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds hit his 668th home run Thursday, giving Bonds and his late father, Bobby, a total of 1,000.

Bonds connected for his 10th homer this season on a 3-2 pitch from Florida Marlins right-hander Brad Penny in the sixth inning. The homer pulled the San Francisco Giants within 2-1.

The 39-year-old Bonds is third on the all-time list behind Babe Ruth (714) and Hank Aaron (755).

Bonds hadn't homered in seven games, since the six-time MVP failed to tie the major league mark for consecutive games with a home run last Wednesday night. The streak ended at seven in an 11-0 loss to the San Diego Padres.

Bobby Bonds hit 332 home runs and stole 461 bases in a 14-year career with the Giants, New York Yankees, California Angels, Chicago White Sox, Texas, Cleveland, St. Louis and the Cubs.

The next-highest father-son total is 636 by Ken Griffey Sr. (152) and Ken Griffey Jr. (484).
