June 13, 2003: Roger Clemens records his 300th career win and 4,000th career strikeout in the same game.
Clemens works 6.2 innings in the Yankees' 5-2 home win against the Cardinals. Clemens strikes 10 and walks two while allowing two earned runs.
Clemens is the first player in 13 years (since Nolan Ryan in 1990) to win 300 career games, and only Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Randy Johnson have followed suit in the 11 years since.
His fourth strikeout of the game against the Cardinals is No. 4,000. Edgar Renteria swings and misses on a full-count pitch.
Clemens pitched 24 MLB seasons with Boston Red Sox (1984-1996), Toronto Blue Jays (1997-1998), Yankees (1999-2003, 2007) and Houston Astros (2004-2006).
Clemens won the World Series twice (1999, 2000) with the Yankees.
Clemens was one of the most dominant pitchers in major league history, recording 354 wins, a 3.12 average ERA and 4,672 strikeouts, which is the third-most all time.
An 11-time All-Star, he won seven Cy Young Awards, the most of any pitcher in history.
