Sports briefs: Johnson chimes in on Bonds

Ex-Giants catcher Brian Johnson, who is best know for his dramatic walkoff homer in 1997 to beat the Dodgers, spoke on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” recounting what he told the staff of baseball steroids investigator George Mitchell. “You can make a fair argument that he may have been cheating,” Johnson said. “Based on what has been documented, it’s hard to dispute that argument.”

Glavine finally gets win No. 300

Hope you tuned in to watch this one, because there’s a chance it may never happen again. Mets lefty Tom Glavine allowed two runs in 6¹/³ innings to pick up his 300th career victory. Glavine is the 23rd player in baseball history (and third among active pitchers) to join the club. There’s been talk that Glavine may be the final member of the 300-win club. Arizona’s Randy Johnson, who will be 44 next month, would be next on the list with 284 wins. But noone knows if he will ever pitch again.
