On The Brink of History!

Randy Johnson retired 15 of the first 16 batters he faced on his way to win #299.  Johnson pitched 6 strong innings, allowing 1 earned run on 5 hits while striking out 5 and evening his record to 4-4 on the season.  The Giants offense continued their  resurgence with 14 hits and 6 runs supporting the Big Unit's cause.  Aaron Rowand, Travis Ishikawa and Juan Uribe all contributed two hits apiece while Emanual Burriss belted out three of his own as the Giants swept the Braves with a 6-3 victory.  

Johnson will get his first shot at 300 next Wednesday at Washington (formerly the Expos) against the franchise he broke into the major leagues with.  After failing in his previous two starts to reach 299, Johnson received help from his teammates in what was a group effort in finally nailing down the win.

Johnson's four wins this season have all come at home. Brian Wilson picked up his 10th save in 13 chances.  The Giants will start a three game series at home against St. Louis on Friday.
