Steve Johnson: Like Father Like Son

Steve Johnson gets his 1st MLB win

“Like father, like son.” Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson took the mound Wednesday night against the Seattle Mariners. Little did the crowd know, this would be an extra-special night for the Johnson family. Making his first career start, Steve Johnson was extremely impressive as he dazzled the Baltimore crowd. After pitching six innings, the rookie recorded nine strikeouts while giving up just two earned runs. His performance was more than enough to secure his first MLB victory. The Orioles came away with a 9-2 win, but that was not the special news of the night. Steve Johnson’s victory came exactly 23 years after Dave Johnson recorded his first MLB win. Yes, Dave Johnson is Steve’s father, and Dave also pitched for the Orioles. Dave recorded his first Major League win on August 8, 1989, as he pitched a complete game, defeating the Minnesota Twins 6-1. Something special is in the air, folks. August 8th… Like father, like son.
