UNDATED (AP) — Twins manager Ron Gardenhire is in some select company, joining a group of five active skippers who have racked up 1,000 wins. The milestone win came in Cleveland as Minnesota beat the Indians 7-3. Kyle Gibson got the win while Carlos Carrasco took the loss. Gibson allowed three hits in five-plus innings as the Twins snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Indians.
Gardenhire is only one of 10 managers ever to win 1,000 career games with a single team. The Twins actually have two members of that elite group, with former manager Tom Kelly winning over 1,000 with the Twins.
