Bonds Held Out of Starting Lineup For 3rd Straight Day

Looks like that chase for 755 could take a while.

Bonds didn't start for the third straight game today, sitting out San Francisco's 12-to-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs and moving no closer to Hank Aaron's home run record.

Bonds is expected to get a chance to add to his 751 homers come tomorrow against lefty Ted Lilly.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy says Bonds is feeling better, and barring all setbacks, is set to go tomorrow.

Bonds hasn't homered in more than two weeks since a two-run shot at Cincinnati on July 3rd. He is mired in an 0-for-21 slump, his longest since a skid of the same length in 2001, the year he broke Mark McGwire's single-season home run record with 73.
