Moyer reacts moments before he is pulled from the game against the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field on April 12, 2012 in Denver, Colorado. The Giants defeated the Rockies 4-2.
The Padres were once again on the wrong side of history Tuesday night.
Rockies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer, 49, became the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league baseball game as the Rockies beat the Padres 5 -3.
Moyer’s fastball topped out at a whopping 78 miles an hour, but he fooled Padres hitters with “smoke & mirrors” for 7 innings.
Three double play ground balls helped his cause.
On the bright side for the Padres Chris Denorfia went 4 for 4 and Chase Headley hit a home run.
