SAN FRANCISCO (Ticker) -- Barry Bonds had one unsuccessful
at-bat in the first game of a doubleheader against the Montreal
Expos. He was much more productive in the nightcap.
Bonds exited after hitting career homer No. 692 in the fifth
inning of a 14-4 rout of the Expos as San Francisco earned a
split of the doubleheader.
Marquis Grissom drove in three runs and Michael Tucker, Deivi
Cruz, Dustan Mohr and starter Wayne Franklin each had two RBI
for the Giants, who went 5-1 against the Expos this season after
dropping all seven meetings in 2003.
Franklin (2-0) yielded one run and three hits in six innings.
He also walked with the bases loaded in a six-run third inning
and had a sacrifice fly in the fourth.
Expos starter T.J. Tucker (3-2) was rocked for six runs and six
hits in 2 1/3 innings. Replacement Claudio Vargas, who faced
one batter in Montreal's 6-2 win in the opener, was not much
better, giving up four runs and three hits in 1 2/3 frames.
Bonds, who came on as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of the
opener and popped up with two men aboard, went 2-for-2 with two
walks and scored three times in the nightcap. Mohr, who was
doubled off second on Bonds' popup, replaced him in this one and
hit a two-run homer off Francis Beltran in the seventh.
