Brewers Beat Giants 7-4

From Sportsline.com:

Barry Bonds spent much of the morning snoozing on a big leather couch in the clubhouse.

If he's going to catch the Babe in Philadelphia, he'd better wake up soon.

Bonds had only a headache to show for his two-day trip to Milwaukee. After going 0-for-4 in the first game, his lone appearance Thursday was in the on-deck circle. The most excitement he produced during his stay was the ball he took off his forehead during batting practice Wednesday.

The rest of the San Francisco Giants didn't fare much better. Carlos Lee and Geoff Jenkins homered, Prince Fielder knocked catcher Todd Greene out of the game in a jarring home-plate collision, and the Milwaukee Brewers held on to beat the Giants 7-4 on Thursday.

The game ended with Bonds on deck, hoping for a chance to pinch-hit as the potential tying run. But as the sparse crowd booed Bonds, Pedro Feliz hit a routine fly for the final out.

"No way. No way. No way," he said after the game, waving his hands to shoo reporters away from his locker. "Get out of here. Go."

The Giants now head to Philadelphia, where Bonds hit Nos. 200 and 250. At 712, he is two homers from tying Babe Ruth for second place on the career list, and manager Felipe Alou said the slugger will play all three games against the Phillies.
