SAN FRANCISCO -- The fans jumped to their feet and let out quite a yelp when Barry Bonds sent a laser to left off Boston's Josh Beckett in the bottom of the third but the ball was caught a couple steps in front of the fence by Detroit's Magglio Ordonez.
Bonds has left Jose Reyes on base twice; Reyes was at second after an odd double as his cue shot skipped off the lip of the dirt and scooted by a stunned Alex Rodriguez. He was left at third when Ken Griffey Jr. struck out and Bonds has been replaced in left field for the top of the fourth by Alfonso Soriano.
Reyes and Ichiro are both 2 for 2 thus far. Reyes is in the MVP lead with his steal and the game's only run. NL still on top, 1-0, through three.
