Prior to the last game of the season, Randy Johnson approached manager Bob Melvin and told him he could throw the pitch count out the window. Randy planned on doing whatever it took to win his final start of the season. Once again the Diamondbacks struggled offensively and it looked like the Big Unit might find himself the recipient of no run support. The Arizona hitters were finally able to eek out a couple of runs late in the game to preserve the win for Randy. It was an incredible pitching performance and was vintage Randy Johnson. He dominated the Colorado Rockies throwing a complete game allowing 2 hits and walking 1 batter while striking out 9. He looked like a man who would not be denied his 295th career win.
