Mark McGwire continues to move up the all-time home run list while widening his lead in this year's race.

McGwire slammed his 504th career homer Saturday to tie Eddie Murray for 15th on the all-time list. The blast came in the third inning of the St. Louis Cardinals' game against the Chicago Cubs.

McGwire has 47 home runs this season, including three in the last two games. He's four blasts better than Cubs outfielder Sammy
Sosa.

McGwire also moved into tenth on the Cardinals' all-time home run list with 141 in just over two seasons.
