The 2007 San Francisco Giants season was the Giants' 125th year in Major League Baseball, their 50th year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their eighth at AT&T Park. The team finished in fifth place in the National League West with a 71–91 record, 19 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks. Their season began with the team attempting to return to the post-season for the first time since 2003. New manager Bruce Bochy was hired to help the club improve on a 76 win season in 2006. Giants left fielder Barry Bonds entered 2007 with 21 home runs shy of tying Hank Aaron for most career home runs. On August 7, 2007, Bonds broke the all-time home run record with his 756th career home run and 22nd of the season. The rotation was bolstered by the arrival of Barry Zito, who was signed to the largest contract ever for a pitcher during the off-season. On September 21 it was revealed that Bonds would not return to the team following the 2007 season.[1]

Historic moments

2007 was a year that had various milestones, whether personal, or historical in terms of team history, or MLB history.

May

On May 7, 2007, Bengie Molina became the first Giant since Willie McCovey in 1977 to hit two home runs in one inning. Ray Durham led off the fifth inning with a walk, and Molina followed the walk with a two-run home run to left field. Rich Aurilia later hit a three-run homer, to make it a six-run inning. Barry Bonds, and Durham then walked, and Molina came up and hit a three-run home run to left-center field, to finish a nine-run inning.[2]

Later in May, on Mother's day, the 13th, rookie Fred Lewis hit for the cycle, in his 16th Major League game, becoming only the 22nd Giant to do so. Lewis hit a double in the first inning, leading off the game, and hit his first major league home run, a three-run shot, in the third inning. His triple came in the fifth inning, and he got the last leg of the cycle in the seventh inning. Lewis was the first Giant to hit for the cycle since Randy Winn did it in Cincinnati on Aug 15, 2005. He is only the fourth player in Major League history to hit his first home run as part of a cycle, joining, Cliff Heathcote, Gary Ward, and Luke Scott. Heathcote accomplished this feat on June 13, 1918, Ward on September 18, 1980, and Scott on July 28, 2006. He also became the first left-handed San Francisco Giants batter to hit for the cycle.[3]

June

Rookie Fred Lewis hit his first career grand slam against the Philadelphia Phillies on June 1, 2007.[4]

July

On July 4, 2007, Fred Lewis hit his second grand slam of the season, becoming the first rookie in San Francisco Giants history to hit two slams in one season. Two of Lewis' first three career home runs were grand slams, and the other was part of a cycle.[5]

August

On August 4, 2007, Barry Bonds tied Hank Aaron for the most home runs in Major League history, when he hit his 755th career home run off of the San Diego Padres' Clay Hensley[6]

Barry Bonds became the all-time home run leader at 8:51 pm PDT, on August 7, 2007, when he hit his 756th career home run off Mike Bascik and the Washington Nationals. His milestone home run was hit just to the right of center field at AT&T Park.[7] A plaque commemorating his home run has since been placed on the wall near where his home run landed.[8]

On August 8, Bonds added to his home run total, when he hit his 757th career homer into McCovey cove. He hit it off of the Washington Nationals' Tim Redding.[9]

September

Barry Bonds hit his final home run of 2007 on September 5, bringing his career total to 762.[10] This would be the final home run of his career.
