On August 13, 2006, for the first time in baseball history, a 300-game winner faces a batter who has hit 700 home runs. 328-game winner Greg Maddux of the Dodgers faces Barry Bonds (723 homers) of the Giants. Maddux wins the battle, holding Bonds to 0-for-2 with a walk in eight shutout innings. Barry Bonds lines into a double play in the first inning.
The Dodgers beat the Giants, 1-0, thanks to Russell Martin’s 10th inning walk-off home run.
