San Francisco Giants vs Houston Astros

To be honest, I'm not too big of a fan of baseball, but I do love watching Barry Bonds racking up his usual home runs almost every game. This time though, he stayed at his record of 745 home runs. They made him get 2 intentional walks instead. This is of course, a pretty smart strategy for the Astros, because I'd think they would rather risk the other lower percentage batters to try to strike them out instead. During this game, Barry Bonds did seem to feel quite tired from all the walks and sprints to the bases. I would think he is usually more used to taking his time to run around the bases because of his consistent high percentage home run hits.
