Phillies fire Manuel; Sandberg takes over as interim manager

The Philadelphia Phillies fired manager Charlie Manuel and said Ryne Sandberg would lead the club for the rest of the season.

The Phillies are 53-67 and are headed to what would be their first losing season in Manuel’s nine-year tenure. The club won the World Series in 2008, their first in 28 years, under Manuel.

Sandberg, a Hall of Fame second baseman who played for the Chicago Cubs, had been the Phillies third base coach.
