With the Oakland A's 7-4 win on Thursday night, Bob Melvin became the fifth manager in team history to hit the 500-win milestone.

“It’d be one thing if you’re having a great year. It’s just a round number,” Melvin said, per Joe Stiglich of NBC Sports Bay Area. “There’s one coming up a little later that might be more (special).”

Melvin is now seven wins away from his 1,000th win overall in his managerial career, which has also included stops with the Arizona Diamonbacks and Seattle Mariners.
