JOHNSON K’s 16 NEW RIVER BATTERS IN 7 INNINGS

For Immediate Release
April 13, 2000

SANTA FE — As if he had not done enough on Thursday, there was Randy Johnson jogging along the Stadium warning track after all the dust had settled.  Sixteen strikeouts, three hits, and only three walks? Congratulations. Run a few laps.  Behind Johnson’s magic and a tweleve-hit performance, Santa Fe dominated New River 7-3 in only the ninth game of the. Mid-West Baseball League Season.  The Devils are already thinking post season bound ‘‘You hope so,’’ Santa Fe General Manager Thomas Ma said about his clubs hopes for the post season. ‘‘You never know what the teams going to do, it’s a long season.’’   What is certain is that Santa Fe came out with a swagger and swinging some big sticks on Thursday.   ‘‘We had a good day offensively,’’ said Ma.  Santa Fe jumped out to a 3-0 lead and knocked out New River starter John Hamala in the seventh inning, the big blow coming on a two-run double by Tony Fernandez.   Chris Haney relieved Hamala in the eighth inning only gave up one hit before getting out of the inning.  ‘‘It gets frustrating as the game goes on,’’ New River right fielder Rusty Greer said. ‘‘But there’s always that chance you can come back, but Randy Johnson was throwing strikes all day’’.  Meanwhile, Johnson was owning the Road Runners. He struck out every Methodist starter at least once and Terry Steinbach, and Royce Clayton, four times each.  ‘‘I love the ball park here, I love the field,’’ Johnson said. ‘‘It must be something about this mound.’’
