Jamie Moyer becomes the oldest MLB pitcher to win a game. Here’s the story from the link:
Jamie Moyer showed there remains a place for a vintage lefty in a young man’s game as the 49-year-old became the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league contest.
Moyer (1-2) was sharp all evening as he picked up his 268th career win, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer for 34th on the career list.
Relying on a consistent cutter and mixing in a 78-mph fastball, the crafty pitcher gave up just six hits and two runs — both unearned — as he kept the Padres hitters at bay and off balance.
“Today, for me, just like it’s been my previous two starts — going out and trying to give my best effort,” Moyer said.
That’s been a winning recipe for Moyer over a career that’s stretched nearly a quarter century and included 689 games.
