Johnson tossed a complete game two hitter, allowing just a double in the fourth inning and a single in the eighth inning. He struck out 10 and walked just two and threw 131 pitches.
Justin Thompson of Watkins tossed a gem as well, allowing just one run on four hits with a walk and five strike outs.
