SATURDAY 6/23-SUNDAY 6/24
? Giants at Cardinals
FX SATURDAY 8 PM, ESPN SUNDAY 8 PM
Welcome to Taterfest 2001 at Busch Stadium, featuring King Spud, St. Louis's Mark McGwire, and the man who would mash his record, San Francisco's Barry Bonds (above). Already Bonds is halfway to history. With 36 home runs through Sunday, he was on pace to surpass by 15 McGwire's single-season mark of 70. The underachieving Giants haven't gotten as much bang for Bonds's bashes as they would have liked; they were only 17-14 when he homered. The Cardinals at last have Big Mac back (he missed 45 games with tendinitis in his right knee) and can counter the bilious Bonds with a budding belter, 21-year-old rookie third baseman Albert Pujols (20 dingers).
