The last time Travis Blackley earned a big-league win, Bob Melvin was his manager - in Seattle.
On Friday, the left-hander earned his first victory since his major-league debut on July 1, 2004.
The seven-year, 350-day gap is the longest in the majors since Vicente Romo went eight years and three days between wins from July 16, 1974, to July 19, 1982.
"I was very aware - very," Blackley said, laughing. "You can't go that long without realizing how long it's been. I'm glad to get that monkey off my back."
Blackley, who has bounced between teams and the minors and majors the past several years, went six innings and allowed five hits, two walks and two runs.
