2001 HEADLINE: Randy Johnson Strikes Out 20 Batters In One Game!!!

On this day in 2001, Randy Johnson struck out 20 batters!!

That’s right 20! And it came against the Cincinnati Reds.

In that contest, Johnson pitched 9 innings while allowing just 3 hits and 1 run. He struck out 20 batters, while walking none. For the Reds, every starter struck out at least one time with two of them racking up three K’s a piece against ‘The Big Unit’.

Congratulations on this incredible feat – and Happy Anniversary!!!

Oh, Johnson’s team ended winning the game 4-3 in 11 innings. Johnson was awarded with a no-decision for his amazing efforts…
