TL;DR - you have to get this in franchise mode and it will pop at the end of the game once you get a pitcher to 20 wins.

You have a couple options for doing that:

1. You're likely to have to play a whole lot of games to get a player to 61 homers anyway, so you can just play legit, making sure your starting pitchers go at least 5 innings and that you have the lead before they leave the game and that you keep the lead the rest of the way. This will get your starting pitcher a win. This would mean the earliest you could get it is on Game 96 of the season with the standard 5-man rotation, assuming you win every game your pitchers start. This is the way I did it and I got the achievement on game 102, my second pitcher's 21st start, since I had a couple no-decisions in there.

2. You can go for the achievement with a reliever. If you pull your starting pitcher with a lead before the end of the 5th inning, the first relief pitcher you put in will be the one that gets the win if you keep the lead until the end of the game. Or, if you aren't leading at that time, whichever pitcher you have in when you do take the lead will be the one that gets the win. So you can theoretically use this to get the achievement much faster if you're just going specifically for this achievement, by putting the same reliever in in the 5th inning every game, skipping a game or two when they need a rest. Someone else will have to confirm that this works but I don't see why it wouldn't.

Either way, it will be much easier to get wins if you keep the other team from scoring, and the best way to do that is with pitchers with a high stamina rating and a high drop rating. If you fill your roster with a whole bunch of these guys, you can get a lot of strikeouts by throwing a slow pitch (cn_LSu+cn_A) and moving the ball side to side. It will drop before it gets to the plate and most of the time they'll swing at it and miss. You will have to experiment with how best to get them to swing and not just let it go by for a ball. Some of the best guys for this are: Bert Blyleven, Jamie Moyer, Tom Seaver, Phil Neikro, Catfish Hunter, Roy Oswalt. You can find them in free agents on the legends tabs. Felix Hernandez from the Mariners is a good one for this too. You can load up your whole team with starters so you can use them more in relief before they get too tired. This would be especially helpful if you decide to use method #2 above.

You can check your progress by going to Team Stats on the Franchise home page. From here press cn_Y to switch to pitching stats, then press cn_RB until the W column is highlighted and press cn_LB to sort the column.
