Johnson to Start on Three Days Rest

By  | 

MIAMI (AP) - Fresh off his 300th victory, San Francisco's Randy Johnson will start on three days' rest at Florida on Monday against the Marlins.

The 45-year-old left-hander allowed two hits in six innings Thursday to beat Washington for his milestone win. Johnson threw only 78 pitches in becoming the 24th to reach the 300-win mark.

Johnson volunteered to pitch Monday after a successful throwing session Saturday to check his bruised shoulder, sustained while fielding a ball in his final inning against Washington.

Johnson last started on three days' rest while pitching for the New York Yankees on July 5, 2005, in a 12-3 victory over Baltimore. Johnson is 6-1 in nine starts on three days' rest with a 2.84 ERA.
