Jamie Moyer feels that someone will eventually break the major league record he set last week as the oldest player to win a game.
That's possible, but the Colorado Rockies 49-year-old left-hander can make that less likely each time he takes the hill.
Moyer gets the ball Monday night in Pittsburgh, where the Rockies open a three-game series against a light-hitting Pirates team that could use a rare solid home start from Kevin Correia.
Nearly 26 years after earning his first major league victory, Moyer (1-2, 2.55 ERA) earned No. 268 on Tuesday. In doing so, he became the oldest player in major league history to win a game at 49 years, 151 days.
The previous record was held by Jack Quinn, who was 49 years, 70 days old when he won Sept. 13, 1932, for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
"The way athletes are going in today's game, I think it could be broken,'' Moyer said after giving up two runs - both unearned - over seven innings of a 5-3 victory over San Diego.
