Randy Johnson moved one win closer to Win #300 Friday night pitching the Giants to a 3-2 win over Colorado. The Big Unit was almost unhitable, striking out nine batters over seven innings. He did not allow a run, and only gave up four hits. The bullpen was a bit shaky, but held on to pull out the victory.
Just how strong was Johnson...well, he struck out the first five batters he faced, and retired the first 11 in a row. He is now 2-2 in his first season with the Giants. Friday's win was #297 of his career. With the three more wins, he will become just the 24th pitcher in baseball history to win 300 career games.
Travis Ishikawa remained hot, plating the game's first run with an RBI double. Bengie Molina and Randy Winn knocked in the other two runs with sacrifice flies. The Giants are now 11-10 this season, and in second place in the N.L. West.
