None of the three milestones are up for grabs last night were reached.
New York Mets pitcher Tom Glavine didn’t earn career win No. 300 as the Mets’ bullpen lost his lead and the team eventually lost in extra innings. Meanwhile, San Fransisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds unsuccessfully tried to tie the career home run record while New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez failed to hit career home run No. 500.
Bonds currently has 754 career home runs, one behind Hank Aaron. Rodriguez, who many believe could one day break the career home run record, has 499 home runs in his career.
Glavine is still looking to become the latest hurler to win 300 games in his career when the Mets face the Milwaukee Brewers tonight. Glavine would be the first pitcher since future hall of famer Greg Maddux reached the milestone on Aug. 7, 2004.
