Pirates’ Hurdle reaches win milestone


When the Pirates topped the Phillies on Friday night, Clint Hurdle became the fifth active manager with 900 wins.

“I really don’t have a whole lot to say about it,” Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m humbled by having gotten the opportunity to manage as many games as I have. Hopefully, I’ve represented the position, helped some boys grow into men and some men grow into leaders.”

Congratulations Clint Hurdle on career win No. 900!
