The 2001 Arizona Diamondbacks looked to improve on their 2000 season. They looked to contend in what was a strong National League West Division. They finished the season with a record of 92-70, good enough for the division title. In the playoffs, they won their NLDS matchup vs. St. Louis on a walk-off hit by Tony Womack. They defeated the Braves in 5 games in the NLCS. In the World Series, they won a dramatic 7 game series on a walk-off hit by Luis Gonzalez.

*On July 19, 2001, Johnson set another record when the previous night's game against the San Diego Padres was delayed by two electrical explosions that knocked out a light tower in Qualcomm Stadium. When the game resumed the following day, Johnson replaced original starter Curt Schilling in the top of the third inning. He pitched the next seven innings, and struck out 16 Padres. Johnson set a new record for strikeouts in a relief appearance, a record that was set 88 years previously by Walter Johnson, who struck out 15 natters in 11 1/3 innings on July 25, 1913.
*Johnson went on to win 20 games for the second time in his career while striking out over 300 hitters for the fourth consecutive year. On October 2, 2001, Randy Johnson earned his 200th career win.
