Forecasts call for brief, scattered thundershowers in the early evening, 30-40 percent. It also means there is a 60-70 percent change of nothing.
Barry’s march toward the all-time home run record continues this weekend at Citizens Bank Park. How many of the four games he will play, isn’t known at this time. During the Phillies’ four-game series in San Francisco four weekends ago, Bonds played in three of the games.
