Heard this morning on KCBS, during a run down of upcoming stories. "San Jose Police making progress in savage beating of elderly man."

Nice of them to keep us informed.

Giants' Johnson wins No. 300

Johnson became the 24th pitcher and sixth left-hander in major-league history to win his 300th game, in a 5-1 victory against the Washington Nationals, and did so as a San Francisco Giant.

Johnson pitched six dominating innings and watched the bullpen get the last nine outs in the opener of a doubleheader that was scheduled after Johnson's start Wednesday night was rained out. The game was far tenser than the final score.

Johnson became the first pitcher since Tom Seaver in 1985 to earn his 300th win on his first try. The six 300-game winners between Seaver and Johnson failed to do so. He also became the second-oldest pitcher to win 300, at 45 years and 267 days. Phil Niekro was the oldest at 46 years, 188 days.

The milestone occurred in front of a few thousand fans in a chilly gloom between storms, with a large contingent of ticket holders behind the visiting dugout rising and cheering for every positive Giants development.



The Big Unit rocks!
