Jamie Moyer is the oldest pitcher ever to win a Major League Baseball game. At 49 years, 150 days old, the Colorado Rockies pitcher earned his first win of the season Tuesday, going seven innings in a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. In doing so, he breaks a record that stood for nearly 80 years. Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers was the previous elder statesman of the mound after getting a win on Sept. 13, 1932, when he was 49 years, 70 days old. “It's an historic night for one tremendous human being,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.

To prepare to face Jamie Moyer on Friday night, Dodgers outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. could watch videos of his past at-bats against the Colorado Rockies left-hander. Or he could talk to his father, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn Sr., who also faced him. Rookie Scott Van Slyke could also solicit advice from his father, former All-Star Andy Van Slyke. Shortstop Dee Gordon's father, former pitcher Tom Gordon, was Moyer's teammate. And Manager Don Mattingly, playing for the New York Yankees, hit a home run against Moyer - 19 years ago. "I think Jamie pitched against my grandfather," jokedJerry Hairston Jr., a third-generation major leaguer.

Jamie Moyer reached a rare mark for a pitcher, becoming the 44th to win 250 games. Moyer went six strong innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to their third straight victory, 4-2 over the Washington Nationals on Sunday. The 46-year-old Moyer is only the 11th left-hander to join the exclusive 250-win list. And despite his teammates' postgame champagne toast, Moyer's words lacked the excitement one might expect after such a rare achievement.

Shane Victorino drove in four runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies extended the Florida Marlins' skid to six games with a 13-2 victory Sunday. Florida, which began the season 11-1, is mired in its longest losing streak since an eight-game slide Aug. 15-22, 2007. "We're not an 11-1 team, and we're not an 0-6 team; we're somewhere in the middle," Manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Jamie Moyer (3-1) gave up one run and seven hits to improve to 7-0 at Dolphin Stadium and 12-1 against the Marlins overall.

History lives on every corner in this city, and in the home clubhouse too. Jamie Moyer is living history, witness to the last championship parade in honor of the Philadelphia Phillies. That was in 1980, and Moyer skipped his high school classes for the parade. "We just decided that we were going to bump school," Moyer said. "I don't like to use the word 'skip.' " He and his friends emerged from the subway to delirious chaos. "We were the hicks coming over from the suburbs," he said.

MILWAUKEE -- After Philadelphia Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel reminisced Friday about Gil Hodges' World Series exploits in the 1950s, Jamie Moyer couldn't help himself. "I think I faced Gil Hodges in that series," Moyer joked. Still going strong at age 45, Moyer has the admiration of his teammates but hardly strikes fear into opposing batters.
