San Francisco Giants' slugger Barry Bonds exults as his 756th home run sails into the stands Tuesday at AT&T Park. The fifth-inning blast off Washington Nationals' starting pitcher Mike Bacsik carries Bonds into the rareified air of exclusivity, as he surpasses Hank Aaron's career home run record of 755. For at least this moment in time Bonds rules over those who suspect that his superhuman batting feats are by fueled steroids, a charge he denies and that has not been proved. Bonds said after the historic game: "This record is not tainted at all, at all, period."
