On Wednesday night, the defending World Series champion Houston Astros pulled off an 8-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
It was their 66th win of the year.
However, it also had some historical significance, as manager Dusty Baker moved into seventh place all-time in managerial victories with 2,159.
Baker helped guide the Astros to a World Series title last year, winning his very first as a manager.
But he accomplished something very special on Wednesday night in Baltimore.
On Twitter, USA Today MLB insider Bob Nightengale congratulated Baker on his victory over the Orioles and his historic achievement to move up on the all-time wins list for managers.
Congratulations to Dusty Baker, who moves into 7th-place on the all-time managerial victories list with 2,159 with the #Astros victory over the #Orioles. The only managers ahead of him have all been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Baker has certainly been around the game for a long time and has experienced a lot of winning.
He took the San Francisco Giants to the World Series in 2002 before having much success with the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds.
Baker also briefly managed the Washington Nationals and guided them to two NL East titles.
Now, Baker has moved up on the all-time wins list for Major League skippers.
All other managers that are still ahead of him on the list are currently in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
Baker certainly has a good track record and appears to be well on his way to the Hall of Fame.
The accomplishments simply keep coming for the Astros skipper, and more are sure to come as time goes by and the Astros remain a powerhouse in the American League.
Time will tell if Baker can climb further up the list.NEXT: Astros Manager Reveals Jose Abreu Injury Update
