Jamie Moyer becomes oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer
Jamie Moyer is in the history books.

In locking down the victory over the Padres Tuesday night, 5-3, the 49-year-old Moyer become the oldest player in Major League Baseball history to record a win.

Moyer worked seven innings, allowing only six hits and zero earned runs (he gave up two runs, both of which were unearned due to Troy Tulowitzki's defensive gaffes).

Moyer is now 1-2 with a 2.55 ERA in three starts for Colorado, so it's pretty obvious this isn't some novelty act. He's getting outs at the major-league level with some consistency.

Previously, Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers was the oldest player in history to record a win, and he did so at 49 years, 70 days. Moyer is 49 years and 150 days old.

Moyer is now 268-206 in his career. He's gathered wins for seven different teams: The Mariners (145), Phillies (56), Cubs (28), Orioles (25), Red Sox (7), Rangers (6) and Rockies (1). He started seven games for the Cardinals, too, but never won a game for them.
