ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Joe Maddon, who led the Chicago Cubs to the 2016 World Series title, lost his job Tuesday as manager of the Los Angeles Angels.

Maddon’s Angels have lost 12 in-a-row.

Third base coach Phil Nevin will be the Angels’ interim manager when they host Boston on Tuesday night.

Maddon went 130-148 with the Angels, who hired him before the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season.

After finishing with losing records in Maddon’s first two seasons, the Angels were off to a strong 27-17 start to this season before their current losing streak began.

They are one loss shy of tying the longest skid in franchise history.
