SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ Barry Bonds hit his 580th career home run on Monday night, a two-run shot off Atlanta Braves starter Kevin Millwood in the third inning.

Bonds drove a 1-0 pitch out of Pac Bell Park and into McCovey Cove, the body of water just beyond right field, for his 13th homer this season. It was the first home run hit into McCovey Cove this year, and Bonds has 16 of the 18 hit there.

Bonds, who has homered in five of his last eight games after an 11-game slump, needs three homers to tie Mark McGwire for fifth on the career homer list.
