The Matchup You've Waited For: Bonds Vs. Laundry Cart

We take you now to the Giants' clubhouse at Dodger Stadium, where Barry Bonds has a few words about his second straight 0-for-5 performance in a 5-3 loss to the Dodgers: "It's an embarrassment for me to be wearing this (expletive deleted) uniform 'cause of the way I'm playing. There, that's it. Now go away,'' Bonds said at his locker. Then he overturned a laundry cart as he walked through the clubhouse. Bonds is hitless in 20 straight at-bats, still four homers from tying Hank Aaron's 755. We can kind of see Bud Selig's point of view now; trying to make sure that you're on hand when Bonds breaks the record would be a neverending road trip at this point.

And defensively, Bonds misplayed James Loney's single for an error, didn't reach a foul ball that landed in the front row of the stands, and he threw to third instead of second on a base hit, allowing the hitter to take second. Matt Kemp had a run-scoring triple for the Dodgers, who scored twice on squeeze bunts.


Mauer Power. Joe Mauer singled home the winning run in the ninth after Justin Morneau's game-tying homer in the eighth, doncha know, as the Twins won 4-3, sweeping the four-game series from the Athletics.

Oliver! Oliver Perez pitched well in his return from the DL, the Mets beating the Reds 5-2. But it's hard not too get a little spooked by the second-place Braves, who are still 1 1/2 back.
