Bonds Wastes No Time Crushing No. 757

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Barry Bonds crushed his 757th career homer and pitcher Matt Cain smacked his 1st as San Francisco blanked Washington 5-0.

Bonds sent a shot into McCovey Cove, one night after breaking Hank Aaron's career mark of 755 home runs. The two-run homer put the Giants ahead 2-0.

Cain became the first Giants pitcher to homer since Jason Schmidt last August. Cain also allowed 3 hits in 6 shutout innings to win for only the 4th time in 16 decisions.

Tim Redding became the 447th pitcher to serve up a Bonds homer.
Redding gave up 4 runs in 7 innings to fall to 1 and 3.
