Here’s a “missing” 1970 career-capper for pitcher Ken Johnson, the very same guy who I profiled in my “Turn Back the Clock” thread for being the first to LOSE an official 9-inning no-hitter while a member of the Houston Colt .45’s:
Johnson was wrapping up a nice 13-year Major League career in 1970, and
appeared in 30 games during the 1969 season, split between three teams:
Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, and finally the Chicago Cubs.
He finished with a 2-5 record along with a 3.89 earned run average over 74 innings, including a couple of saves.
He was a solid starter during the 1960’s, lost no-hitter aside, posting
six 10+ game-winning seasons with a high of 16 in 1965, all for
lower-tiered teams, with a couple of sub-3.00 ERA years thrown in.
He would finish with a 91-106 career record with a 3.46 ERA over 334 games with 1042 strikeouts in 1737.1 innings.
