Brewers Lose to Giants 0-2

From Sportsline.com:

Barry Bonds connected solidly with his forehead. He didn't have as much luck with his bat.

Bonds didn't come any closer to catching Babe Ruth after getting bonked in the head during batting practice Wednesday, going 0-for-4. Instead, it was Pedro Feliz who went deep, and Jason Schmidt pitched a gem to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Bonds remains at 712 homers, two shy of matching Ruth for second place, and that's not likely to change Thursday. Though he said through a Giants spokesman that his status for Thursday's afternoon game is uncertain, manager Felipe Alou said Bonds wouldn't play.

"He's not going to be in," Alou said.

The Giants didn't need him, not with the way Schmidt (2-2) was pitching.

Schmidt threw his ninth career shutout, scattering five hits and striking out seven. He retired 16 of 17 hitters at one point, but got in trouble in the ninth with singles to Brady Clark and Geoff Jenkins.

Clark advanced to third on a fielder's choice, but Schmidt struck out Prince Fielder to end the game.
