The Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-5 on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field to give Joe Maddon his 1,000th victory as a Major League manager.
Maddon is the eighth active manager to reach the milestone. He celebrated with a glass of red wine made by Big Smooth Wines out of Lodi, California in the press room.
"I've seen a lot of different methods," Maddon said with the glass of wine waiting on the table in front of him. "I've been taught well, and I really want to say, it's 1,000 wins. Other guys have done it, but to the players that have been a part of this, I want to say thank you -- because you don't do this without really good players. You don't."
