Jamie Moyer has achieved what only 43 others in MLB history have done before.Jamie Moyer went six strong innings to win his 250th career game, and the Philadelphia Phillies won their third straight game, 4-2 over the bumbling Washington Nationals on Sunday.

The 46-year-old Moyer is the 46th player to win 250 games, and only the 11th left-hander to joint he exclusive list. It was his sixth try at 250 after going winless in his last five outings while allowing 38 hits and 26 earned runs in 24 1-3 innings.

But Moyer (4-5) had one his best starts of the season Sunday, striking out four and walking none while registering a season-low hits allowed. It was Moyer's first win since April 26.

The Phillies (28-20) have won seven straight against Washington and 10 of 12 this season against major league baseball's worst team.
