Hinch is out as Arizona manager; Gibson is in

compiled from staff and wire reports

The ownership of the Arizona Diamondbacks have shaken up the front office and the dugout.

General manager Josh Byrnes, three years ago coveted as a genius and given an unheard of eight-year contact extension, was fired recently along with young manager A.J. Hinch, whose team was 34 games under .500 in less than one full season on the job.

A name so recognizable with winning and hard-nosed play, Kirk Gibson, moves up from being the bench coach to become interim manager. Former major league pitcher Jerry DiPoto moves from vice president of player personnel to interim general manager.

The shakeup happened as the Diamondbacks are in the midst of a 10-game home stand anchored in last place in the NL West for the second year in a row, 15 games behind the San Diego Padres.

The 36-year-old Hinch, is the fourth manager to lose his job this year. In order, Trey Hillman of Kansas City, Dave Trembley of Baltimore and Fredi Gonzalez of Florida preceded him in getting a pink slip.

Kirk Gibson will bring a tough, no-nonesense, ol-school baseball attitude to the job. He is used to winning have played for Sparky Anderson and Tommy LaSorda.

He hit .268 with 255 home runs, 870 RBI’s and 284 stolen bases in 17 seasons as a major league outfielder with Detroit, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Pittsburgh.

Giants trade Bengie Molina to the Rangers

compiled from staff and wire reports

The American League West-leading Texas Rangers filled a significant need recently by acquiring veteran catcher Bengie Molina and cash from the San Francisco Giants for reliever Chris Ray and a minor league pitcher.

The 35-year-old Molina, who went to the playoffs three times with the Angels and won a World Series in 2002, is currently batting .257 with three homers and 17 RBI’s. The two-time Gold Glove winner became expendable when the Giants recently promoted their top catching prospect Buster Posey.

Chris Ray, the right-handed reliever in the deal, is 2-0 with a 3.41 ERA in 35 games this season. The Rangers also sent right-hander Michael Main, their 2007 first-round draft pick (24th overall) to San Francisco.

Athletics cool down Indians, 3-0 behind Gio Gonzalez

compiled from staff and wire reports

Oakland A’s pitcher Gio Gonzalez is starting to become the ace of the staff. He can be very good and dominating at times.

Against Cleveland on Friday night, he pitched 6 innings and allowed five hits and upped his record to 7-5.

The Indians had a chance to stage a rally in the bottom of the sixth inning but a strange play took them out of the inning.

With the bases loaded, and catcher Mike Redmond at the plate, he hit a line drive into the outfield that landed on the grass for a hit?

No! Because of two factors. Redmond is 39 years old and can’t run fast at all and the ball was not hit very far.

Oakland rightfielder Ryan Sweeney, was playing like a rover in softball, threw Redmond out at first base to stop a potential Tribe rally as the Athletics won the game 3-0 last night in Progressive Field.

The Indians (31-48) saw their five-game winning streak snapped.

Oakland (40-41) has won seven of eight against Cleveland, including three of four this year.

Indians right fielder Shin-Soo Choo left the game in the eighth inning. He appeared to hve injured his right hand while diving for a ball in the outfield.
