BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles hired Brandon Hyde to be their new manager Friday Matt Holliday Jersey , hoping his experience as Cubs bench coach will help the team move forward while in rebuilding mode.Hyde takes over for Buck Showalter, who was fired after Baltimore finished 47-115 — the worst record in the majors. This will be Hyde’s first stint as a major league manager.The 45-year-old Hyde was selected by general manager Mike Elias, who began an extensive search for Showalter’s replacement after being hired last month to replace Dan Duquette.“I believe that we have found the ideal leader for the next era of Orioles baseball,” Elias said of Hyde.Hyde worked as Chicago’s bench coach this year under manager Joe Maddon. He was in the second of three seasons as Cubs first base coach when the team won the World Series in 2016.Before that, Hyde served as Rick Renteria’s bench coach in Chicago in 2014. He previously served as Chicago’s director of player development from August 2012 through 2013 after joining the Cubs in December 2011 as their minor league field coordinator.Prior to joining the Cubs, Hyde spent nine seasons in the Miami Marlins organization. He was Miami’s bench coach from June 2010 through the end of the 2011 season.“Brandon’s deep background in player development and major league coaching — most recently helping to shape the Cubs into a world champion — has thoroughly prepared him for this job and distinguished him throughout our interview process,” Elias said.Elias and Hyde will seek to develop a team that shifted into rebuild mode last July under Duquette, who traded away many of the team’s stars — most notably Manny Machado, Zach Britton http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/aut...-romine-jersey , Jonathan Schoop and Kevin Gausman — for 15 prospects and International bonus pool money in moves that cut payroll from $151 million to $136 million.On the day he was introduced by Baltimore, Elias spoke about the significance of landing the right manager to shape the Orioles into a team that can be competitive in the AL East.“This is an important hire, just like this was an important hire,” Elias said on Nov. 19. “It’s not something you rush. We want to get the right person for this time.”Hyde will be formally introduced as the 20th manager in Orioles history on Monday. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland will have to take its bubbly on the road.Kyle Gibson allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings, Jake Cave hit a two-run homer and the Minnesota Twins beat the Athletics 5-1 Sunday, preventing Oakland from clinching an AL wild-card berth in its last regular-season home game.“I think it was a little disappointing,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “A lot of times we put on our best shows late in games, unfortunately it didn’t happen today.”Oakland leads Tampa Bay by 7½ games and needs one win or a Rays loss to clinch its first playoff berth in four years. The A’s remained 1½ games behind the New York Yankees Reggie Jackson Jersey , who have clinched a wild-card berth, and fell 4½ games back of AL West-leading Houston.After going 50-31 for its best home record since 2013, the A’s finish with three-game series at Seattle and the Los Angeles Angels. Oakland is 60-26 since mid-June.“It would have been nice to clinch, but we weren’t changing anything up or anything like that,” A’s first baseman Matt Olson said.Gibson (9-13) gave up seven hits and three walks. Trevor May struck out Ramon Laureano with two on in the eighth and pitched around a one-out walk in the ninth for his first big league save.Minnesota finished 29-52 on the road.Oakland won two of three despite going 0 for 21 with runners in scoring position in the series, including seven at-bats Sunday.Trevor Cahill (6-4) allowed five runs — three earned — and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.Cave hit a two-run homer in the first, but Olson cut the lead in half in the second with his 28th homer.Minnesota added three runs in the fourth after Robbie Grossman singled with one out and Tyler Austin hit a potential double-play grounder to third baseman Matt Chapman, who threw the ball to the left of second baseman Chad Pinder and into right field for his 19th error.“I was worried about the catch and I didn’t pick up my target,” Chapman said. “I think I had a little more time http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/aut...illiams-jersey , I might have rushed my throw because I wanted to turn the double play. It was my fault that three runs scored so it doesn’t really feel good.”Max Kepler hit an RBI single, Ehire Adrianza chased Cahill with a run-scoring double and Chris Gimenez greeted Shawn Kelley with a sacrifice fly.“For the last couple of years we’ve seen people celebrate when we’re in town,” Gibson said. “To be able to finish off the season and not have to watch anybody celebrate, kind of nice.”FAN BASEA crowd of 35,754 raised Oakland’s season total at home to 1,527,588.FRANCHISE MARKJoe Mauer was 2 for 4. His fifth-inning single was his 3,072nd time reaching base, tying Harmon Killebrew’s franchise record. Twins manager Paul Molitor said he’s been communicating regularly with Mauer about his role in this week’s six-game homestand. Mauer is contemplating retirement.“We haven’t finalized how many games he will play throughout the course of the week C.C. Sabathia Jersey , and which game of this particular campaign will be his last one,” Molitor said.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: C Mitch Garver (concussion) played catch on the field, but Molitor said it has not been determined whether he will play again this year. Garver has been out since he took a foul tip to his mask on Sept. 12. … Molitor expects to make decisions on the playing status of 3B Miguel Sano (lower left leg bruise) and 2B Logan Forsythe (left knee inflammation) on Tuesday.UP NEXTTwins: Minnesota has not announced a starting pitcher for Monday’s series opener against Detroit.Athletics: RHP Daniel Mengden (7-6, 4.00 ERA) will make his first start since June 23 in Monday’s series opener in Seattle.
