MIAMI (AP) -- San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds wasn't in the Giants' lineup for their game Sunday afternoon against the Florida Marlins.
Bonds, baseball's career home run leader, often gets day games off following a night game, and manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that the left fielder wouldn't be playing Sunday. Bonds extended the major league mark to 760 homers with a two-run shot in San Francisco's 4-3 win on Saturday night.
It's unknown if Bonds will be in the lineup Monday afternoon when the Giants finish the four-game series at Florida.
Bonds is hitting .280 with 26 home runs and 59 RBIs this season.
