49-year old left-hander Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher in major league history to earn a win last night, throwing seven innings en route to a Colorado Rockies (5-6) 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres (3-9). The two teams face off again tonight at 6:40 at Coors Field in the final game of the series. (TV: Root Sports.)

At 49 years and 150 days, Moyer surpassed the previous record held by the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Jack Quinn, who beat the St. Louis Cardinals at Ebbetts Field on Sept. 13, 1932, at 49 years and 70 days. Moyer also tied Hall of Famer Jim Palmer on the all-time wins list at 268. It was Moyer’s first win since June 27, 2010. On July 20, Moyer suffered an elbow injury that required surgery and kept him out until he signed with the Rockies on a Minor League contract and made the team in Spring Training.

Official: Tuesday’s Box Score.

That Moyer held his own in a well-pitched game made manager Jim Tracy appreciate the performance even more. “He didn’t win 10-8 or 9-7,” Tracy said. “He pitched seven awesome innings.”
