Randy Johnson Wins 300th Game

Randy Johnson won his 300th game of his career, beating the Washington Nationals. The San Francisco Giants cruised to a 5-1 victory over the Nationals.

Johnson pitched six innings and allowed just one earned run on two hits and two walks. He struck out two.

Rookie Jordan Zimmerman pitched superb, ( 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 SO), but the Giants were able to score early and give Johnson run support.

The defense also helped out with a sliding catch by Aaron Rowand and a fantastic double play started by the diving Emmanuel Burris.

Brian Wilson earned the save, striking out Wil Nieves to end the game and finish off Johnson's 300th win.

In 22 seasons, the future Hall of Famer is now tied for 22nd on the all time wins list with a record of 300-164. He has a career ERA of 3.29 and ranks second in all time strike outs with 4846.

Johnson could be the last to reach 300 wins. The next closest is 46 year old Jamie moyer with 250.
