On the field: For the fifth time this year, Brady Anderson opened the Orioles' attack with a homer, his 12th of the season. The AL record is nine, set by Rickey Henderson for the New York Yankees in 1986, and the major-league record is 11, set by Bobby Bonds for San Francisco in 1973. A scout following the team theorized yesterday that Anderson has been helped immensely this season by having Roberto Alomar hitting behind him. When pitchers fall behind in the count, they'd prefer to throw Anderson a fastball than walk him with Alomar to follow.

Court documents show Barry Bonds tested positive for three types of steroids, and his personal trainer once told his business manager in the San Francisco Giants' clubhouse how he injected the slugger with performance-enhancing drugs "all over the place." Prosecutors plan to use those 2000-2003 test results and other evidence, detailed in documents released yesterday, at Bonds' trial next month to show he lied when he told a federal grand jury in December 2003 that he never knowingly used steroids.

One milestone after another greets Barry Bonds. Less than 16 months since he became the 17th member of baseball's 500 home run club, Bonds is about to join an even more elite group. Bonds, with 599 home runs after hitting one Tuesday night, is on the verge of becoming the fourth to hit 600 home runs, joining his godfather, Willie Mays, who reached that milestone with his last home run of the 1969 season. Mays finished his career four years later with 660. The other two members, of course, are the lone members of a 700 club that has nothing to do with Pat Robertson - Hank Aaron (755)

HOUSTON - Barry Bonds waited. He waited nearly four games for someone to throw him a pitch that was worthy of his prodigious swing. He waited and walked and waited some more and, finally, he got one last night in his final at-bat of a three-game series at Enron Field. Houston Astros left-hander Wilfredo Rodriguez challenged Bonds with a 93-mph fastball and Bonds responded with a mammoth home run to right center field in the ninth inning of a 10-2 victory. Step aside Mark McGwire. Bonds now owns a share of your single-season home run record with 70 in 159 games.

PITTSBURGH -- After his disaster of a playoff series reached a low point in Game 4 Saturday night, Barry Bonds spent 90 minutes in conversation with his manager, Jim Leyland. Then he went home and spoke for two hours on the phone with his old teammate, Bobby Bonilla."I didn't get to bed until 6 in the morning," Bonds said last night.His mind was turbulent with emotion. For the third straight year, he was falling apart in the National League playoffs. This time, with his contract up and free agency looming, he was having these terrible, conflicting thoughts about his six years in Pittsburgh coming to an end."

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The clubhouse door flew open, and Barry Bonds immediately recognized the older man holding court. Bonds smiled and wrapped his arms around Willie Mays' shoulders. "Say, hey! You show up and cause havoc around here. Let's get out of here, man," Bonds said. Mays smiled and let Bonds bearhug him, but he didn't follow Bonds out to the field. Whereas Bonds is reluctant to banter and expand the horizons of his ever-growing legend, Mays was willing. After Bonds escaped another media gaggle, sauntering off to the field, Mays did what had to be done.

Phil Niekro grasps fully the importance of the knuckleball. It's the pitch that enabled him to win 300 games and become the only player elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday.But on the day the knuckleball finally reaped its greatest reward for Niekro, he reminisced about the one occasion he didn't need the pitch.Niekro threw only one knuckleball on Oct. 8, 1985, when he beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 8-0, pitching a four-hitter for his 300th victory and, at age 46, becoming the oldest pitcher in history to throw a shutout.
