Ned Yost Sets Record For Wins As Kansas City Royals Manager
It was a milestone night for Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost after beating Milwaukee, 3-2, Thursday.
Ned Yost surpassed Whitey Herzog for most wins by a Royals manager, his 411th victory since taking over in 2010.
“It’s nice, but I don’t really look at it as an individual achievement,” Yost said. “First of all, I don’t feel like I’m in the same class as Whitey Herzog and Dick Howser. Two, this is an organizational achievement.”
Ironically, Yost set the record against the Milwaukee Brewers, the previous major league team he managed before his firing in mid-September of 2008, when they were contending for the playoffs.
The Royals won all four games against the Brewers this week, two in Milwaukee and two in Kansas City.
