Win No. 408 puts Buck third on O's list
Skipper behind only Weaver (1,480) and Richards (517)
BALTIMORE -- Buck Showalter picked up his 408th victory as O's manager on Saturday night with the 9-4 win against the Yankees, moving into third place behind Earl Weaver (1,480) and Paul Richards (517) on the franchise managerial wins list.
Showalter was asked about tying Hank Bauer for third place following Friday night's victory, and he credited his players and his timing of entering the organization for the feat. His move up the record books comes during a six-game winning streak, matching the longest winning streak since Showalter became O's skipper on Aug. 2, 2010. It is the Orioles' fourth six-game winning streak under Showalter.
"He's been managing a long time," Orioles pitcher Bud Norris said. "He's going to get a lot of wins. He knows what he's doing. At [game time], there's no other guy I'd rather have back there"
Showalter has 1,290 overall wins as a big league manager -- No. 33 on the all-time list. He has the third-most wins of active managers, behind Bruce Bochy and Mike Scioscia.
