History was made Monday night at AT&T Park.

The Giants’ Denard Span hit the first leadoff Splash Hit by a San Francisco Giant in the 17-year history of AT&T Park when he opened the bottom of the first Monday by putting a ball into McCovey Cove. The Giants went on to win 11-5, improving the franchise’s record to 48-20 in games they hit a Splash Hits, including the last eight.

You can watch it here.

After going 112 games between Splash Hits – the longest such drought in stadium history – it only took only four games for the Giants to get another.

Brandon Belt his Splash Hit No. 69 on Wednesday. Span hit No. 70 on Monday.

In doing so, Span became the 20th Giant to record a Splash Hit.

It also meant the number of Splash Hits by Barry Bonds matched the number by players other than Bonds: 35 each.

So in other words, it takes 19 Giants to equal one Barry Bonds. Here is how it breaks down.
