[Barry] Bonds’ 747 takes off, lifting Giants.

SAN FRANCISCO — Everyone’s been saying it. Coaches, teammates, opposing pitchers, fans: “It’s only a matter of time.”

Monday night, that matter of time ended when Barry Bonds finally hit another home run and the sporting world exhaled.

So did the rest of the Giants as their hits finally started falling, and on Monday night, everything was as it should be in San Francisco.

Bonds’ home run No. 747 ignited a three-run, go-ahead rally to propel the Giants to a 4-3 win over Toronto. Matt Morris pitched a complete game for his seventh consecutive win. This was a big one for the Giants, who entered the game shouldering a 21-inning scoreless streak and an Oakland sweep on the mind. It was also a big one for Bonds, who hadn’t hit a home run in 12 games.
