For two innings in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Josh Johnson felt and looked as good as he did at the start of last season, when he was arguably the most dominant pitcher in baseball. After walking two and needing 18 pitches to get through the first inning, Johnson needed 17 pitches to get through the next two, as he threw 13 were strikes and set down the Rays in order. "That was where I wanted to be. Going right after guys, throwing quality pitches. That is what I have been looking for all spring, those two innings," said Johnson, who pitched five scoreless innings, allowing three hits while walking five, with four strikeouts and a wild pitch.
