On This Day In Baseball History: June 4, 2009



During the first game of a double-header, Giants lefty Randy Johnson goes six innings as the Giants beat the Nationals 5-1. The victory is Johnson’s 300th of this career. Johnson becomes the 24th player in history to win 300 career games and only the sixth lefty, joining Warren Spahn (363), Steve Carlton (329), Eddie Plank (326), Tom Glavine (305), and Lefty Grove (300). Johnson would win three more games to finish his career with 303.
