BALTIMORE – Jim Johnson redeemed himself on Wednesday night. After four blown saves, Johnson finally recorded his 16th of the season as he made quick work of the Nationals in the ninth.

It was no big deal for Johnson.

“I feel better. I’m always trying to improve, and I continue to do that,” Johnson said on Thursday afternoon.

“I’m just trying to make good adjustments when I have to. I’ll just continue to do that and trust that what I’m doing is the right thing.”

Johnson was appreciative of the positive reaction that his appearance
triggered.

“They were supportive, the fans that we had in Toronto, the fans that we had in Washington, every place we go,” Johnson said.

He’s always reviewing tapes of his outings, looking for clues.

“I look at everything. You’ve got to take the good with the bad,” Johnson said. “You can overanalyze things. There’s keys in my delivery. There’s key in being successful.

“It’s a combination of a lot of different things. I have a routine of getting on the mound at certain times, a routine of watching video of other hitters. It’s not just one thing in particular. It’s a combination of other things, ” Johnson said.
