MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers routed the New York Mets 10-2 on Wednesday night for their second win in 11 games. Milwaukee’s big night gave manager Craig Counsell his 564th victory with the Brewers, breaking the franchise record.
Counsell, the longest-tenured manager in the National League, passed Phil Garner, who managed 1,180 games for the team from 1992-99.

"Counsell is the longest-tenured active manager in the National League and the third longest-tenured active manager in MLB. He was named the 19th manager in franchise history in 2015," the Milwaukee Brewers said in a statement. "Now in his eighth season as Brewers manager and seventh full season, only the Guardians Terry Francona and Rays Kevin Cash have longer active tenures with their current teams."
Counsell lives in Whitefish Bay with his wife and four children. He graduated from Whitefish Bay High School in 1988 and the University of Notre Dame in 1992.
