Barry Bonds hits his 71st and 72nd home runs of the season to set a new major league single-season mark in the Giants’ 11-10 heartbreaking loss to the Dodgers. The first inning blast to break the record comes off Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park. Rich Aurilia hits his 37th but the Dodgers eliminate the Giants from a possible playoff berth. The game takes 4 hours 27 minutes‚ at the time the longest nine-inning game in major league history.
