If you have cable or satellite and can get ESPN2, the game is tied, 2-2 in the 6th down there at Petco Park. Bonds is still in the game. It will be interesting to see if the Padres give him a chance to break the record.

Update: Bonds was walked in the 8th, and a pinch runner replaced him at first.

Commissioner Bud Selig is in attendance down there at Petco.

Earlier today Alex Rodriguez became the youngest player to reach 500 home runs out in the Bronx.
