Bonds hits 47th homer
The d Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO Barry Bonds' major league-leading 47th homer wasn't nearly enough to prevent the Phillies from snapping the San Francisco Giants' nine-game winning streak with a 12-2 victory on Saturday.
Pat Burrell homered, Todd Pratt hit three doubles and Jimmy Rollins reached base five times as Philadelphia got 17 hits and stole five bases while rolling to its first victory in 13 games in San Francisco, dating to Aug. 30, 1998.
Bonds' two-run blast landed in the waters of McCovey Cove in the sixth inning. His 47th homer came in the Giants' 111th game; Mark McGwire had two fewer homers in the same numbers of games on the way to a record 70 in 1998.
