The Pulse: 2001 World Series was fans’ favorite Randy Johnson Diamondbacks moment

Jan 8, 2015, 2:14 AM | Updated: 2:14 am

Every day, ArizonaSports.com asks readers a question. It’s the Sanderson Ford Poll Question of the Day, and it can be found midway down the right side of our home page.

Tuesday, we asked what your favorite Randy Johnson Diamondbacks moment was.

A total of 841 votes were submitted, and 68 percent of voters chose the 2001 World Series as their favorite moment.

Johnson went 3-0 with a 1.04 ERA and 19 strikeouts in two starts and one relief appearance against the New York Yankees in the D-backs’ first and only World Series victory.

He and fellow starting pitcher Curt Schilling were named co-MVPs of the seven-game series.

The second most votes went to this incident from 2001:

Poor bird.

On May 18, 2004, history was made, as Johnson pitched a perfect game against the Atlanta Braves. The moment earned the third most votes.

Four percent of the vote went to Johnson’s 20-strikeout game against the Cincinnati Reds on May 8, 2001.

A few voters believed neither of the four moments mentioned above qualified as their favorite during his time in Arizona.
