Bonds crushed a home run deep into the right field bleachers, sending the entire park into an uproar that woke Jerry Manuel from his mid-evening nap. Manuel decided that it was appropriate to pull Buehrle after the Bonds home run, as opposed to doing so before he came to the plate.
Colon pitched that game. He blew Bonds away three times that game. The first pitch he threw was a 97 mph fastball and Bonds killed it.
