NEW YORK (AP) - Buck Showalter got his 1,000th victory as a major league manager, Brian Matusz ended his 11-month losing streak and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 7-1 Tuesday night.
Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy homered off struggling Phil Hughes, giving the Orioles their first win in five tries against the Yankees this year.
Showalter, whose first win came 20 years ago across the street at old Yankee Stadium when New York's Scott Sanderson beat Boston ace Roger Clemens, improved to 1,000-958 in 14 seasons with the Yankees, Arizona, Texas and Baltimore. He joined Dusty Baker, Bruce Bochy, Davey Johnson, Jim Leyland, Mike Scioscia and Bobby Valentine among active managers in the 1,000-win club.
