A day later, Moyer downplays his accomplishment

DENVER (AP) - Jamie Moyer wasn't overly sore or elated after his record-setting night.

The 49-year-old Colorado Rockies lefty was pretty much business as usual Wednesday, the day after becoming the oldest pitcher to win a major league contest.

After pitching seven sharp innings against San Diego, his arm was a little bit tired and his legs stiff.

But that's typical for him after a start.

Only, this wasn't an ordinary trip to the mound. Moyer was the talk of baseball as he turned in a vintage performance to work his way into the record books.

About that: Moyer doesn't want to be viewed as a novelty act. He's here to help, not make history.

The record-setting outing didn't mean as much to him as pulling the Rockies out of a two-game skid.
