LOS ANGELES -- San Francisco Giants and former USC pitcher Randy Johnson became just the 24th player in Major League Baseball history to record 300 wins in his career as the Giants beat the Washington Nationals, 5-1, at Nationals Park. Johnson went six innings and allowed one unearned run on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
Johnson (Livermore/Livermore HS) pitched three seasons at USC (1983-85), going 16-12 with a 4.66 ERA and five saves in 67 games for the Trojans. He threw 243 1/3 innings, allowing 225 hits with 188 walks and 206 strikeouts.
The five-time Cy Young Award winner and 10-time All-Star was a member of the 2001 Arizona Diamondback squad that defeated the New York Yankees in the World Series. Johnson was named Co-MVP, along with teammate Curt Schilling, after going 3-0 in the World Series with a 1.04 ERA (17 1/3 IP, 3 BB, 19 SO).
He began his MLB career in 1988 with the Montreal Expos after being drafted by the Expos in the second round of the 1985 draft.
