In 2004, he became the sixth manager in history to win pennants with both American and National League teams; in 2006 he became the first manager ever to win multiple pennants in both leagues and became one of only two managers to win the World Series in both leagues. He is ranked third all-time for total number of Baseball All-time Managerial Wins list (2,676), trailing only Connie Mack (3,731) and John McGraw (2,763). He managed his 5,000th major league game (2,676-2,320-4   0.536) on June 10, 2011, but the milestone was marred by a shutout loss at Milwaukee.
