ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have fired manager Joe Maddon with the team mired in a 12-game losing streak. 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 before their current losing streak began. They are one loss shy of tying the longest skid in franchise history.
