The Big Unit did it.
Randy Johnson won his 300th game in the big leagues. He pitched six innings giving up only one unearned run en route to a 5-1 victory for the San Francisco Giants over the Washington Nationals in D.C.
He had been scheduled to pitch yesterday but the game was postponed due to rain. Precipitation was a factor today and delayed the start of the game.
It was a shame they didn't play to a packed house. I don't know what the attendance figures were but combine bad weather with a bad team and you won't get a lot of people lining up to get inside.
The sparse attendance reminds me of when Ken Griffey, Jr hit his 600th career home run in Miami last year or when Tony Gwynn collected his 3,000th hit in Montreal a decade ago.
Adding to the significance of Johnson's achievement is that he will probably be the last pitcher to attain 300 wins in a career as I discussed earlier this week.
As Carly Simon sung, "These are the good old days."
