Rocket Superb In Win # 350

Looking as if it was 1987, not 2007 Roger Clemens threw eight innings giving up just two hits, and defeated the Minnesota Twins Monday night 5-1 and got career victory number 350. The last MLB pitcher to reach that milestone was the Braves Warren Spahn, who reached the mark on September 29, 1963 shutting out the Cubs 2-0. His catcher was ironically Yankees manager Joe Torre. Clemens allowed a run in the second but other than that was magnificent, throwing 97 pitches 67 for strikes. It was only the third win that New York has had in their last 12 games.
