CHICAGO -- Dusty Baker managed the 3,000th game of his career when the Reds played the Cubs on Tuesday. His career record includes 1,556 games for the Giants and 648 for the Cubs, and Tuesday was game No. 796 for the Reds.

"I still enjoy what I am doing," Baker said. "I don't know if I've got 3,000 more, of course. I'll keep doing it until I stop enjoying it."

Baker's career record entering the night was 1,572-1,426 and he also had one tie with the Giants on Aug. 15, 2002, vs. the Braves. He is second in all-time wins among active managers, behind Jim Leyland.

"I'm a daily person. Everybody wants to achieve things," Baker said. "I'm just glad that out of the 3,000 games, I've won more than lost. I've still got quite a few games left in me."
