123406_90x1351On the day the Yankees completed their 2nd sweep in a row, and their 5th win in a row, Joe Torre became the 4th winningest, manager in Yankee history. Torre joins Joe McCarthy (1,460), Casey Stengel (1,149) and Miller Huggins (1,067) as the only managers in franchise history to reach that milestone. He reached the 4 figure mark in Arlington, Texas with an 8-5 Yankee victory this afternoon over the Rangers. Win No. 1,000 came with the help of Hideki Matsui, Chien-Ming Wang and Scott Proctor, each of whom made major contributions. Matsui belted a three-run home run to kick off a five-run fourth inning, while Wang allowed three runs over six solid innings. Proctor may have given the Yankees the biggest lift, escaping, bases-loaded, no-out in the seventh. Bernie Williams, who, along with Derek Jeter and Mo Rivera, has been with Torre for his entire career in management with the Yankees, also drove in three runs in the win.

Again, Congrats Joe…
