You're right. I just looked it up. Thank you for correcting me.
Edit: I think I remembered Buehrle pitching that game because he actually pitched the night before, giving up eight earned runs in four-and-one-third innings of work. As it turned out, the Bonds home run against Colon only tied the game. The killing blow came later that inning, after Rich Aurilia blasted a grand slam to give the Giants an 8-4 lead. Only then did Manuel use the bullpen. Why didn't he use Marte against Bonds when it was obvious Colon was slipping? Good grief, was he awful.
