Juan Marichal(8-7) was charged with the loss. Camden scored big getting 5 runs off him in 2 innings. Johnson was asked about his big strikeout performance, 'Well, it's a little odd when you rack up these numbers on the road - instead of cheers and a running tally in the stands, everything gets real still and quiet. Just strange - but it's nice to be able to take the crowd out of the game.'
