The Giants hit four home runs, but none as majestic as Barry Bonds' bomb off Troy Percival in the ninth.

WS Game 2

Oct. 20, 2002 -- Angels 11, Giants 10: When Barry Bonds wasn't peeling off his elbow guard and jogging down to first base, he put a memorable hurt on the Angels. His personal inventory consisted of three walks and a 485-foot homer that Tim Salmon called "The farthest ball I've ever seen hit in this ballpark, for sure."

Ultimately it was Salmon, the franchise mainstay, who sent the Edison Field fans home happy. He went 4-for-4 with two homers to tie the Series at one victory each, and the Angels went on to beat the Giants in seven games. It was a heck of a reward for a player who had entered October with 1,388 career games played and no postseason appearances -- the longest drought of its kind at the time.
