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.
He threw seven strong innings and Dexter Fowler hit a two-run homer to help the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Tuesday night.
''It's a great night for the Rockies, as far as winning a baseball game. But it's an historic night for one tremendous human being,'' Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. ''It couldn't happen to a better guy. A more professional person I don't know I've been around.''
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.
