Default Would You Walk Barry Bonds?

The score is tied in the bottom of the ninth. Two outs. Bases empty. Barry Bonds is up. Assume he will either single (26% probability), homer (8%), or make out. The two batters behind him will each single 30% of the time and make out the rest. Should he be intentionally walked? Please answer only yes or no.

not enough info.
if he gets walked or a single, how many singles does it take for him to score?
i'll assume two.

if so, walk him.
actually, either way walk him, but that info should have been included.
