PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The Philadelphia Phillies have selected Joe Girardi as their new manager and will introduce him at a news conference on Monday. Girardi replaces Gave Kapler, who was fired after his injury-depleted team went 81-81 despite the additions of Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto. Girardi completed a 10-year run as manager of the Yankees in 2017 leading New York to the 2009 World Series title and compiling 910-710 record.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs have hired David Ross as their manager after the ballclub missed the postseason for the first time in five seasons under previous skipper Joe Maddon. The 42-year-old former catcher played the final two of his 15 major league seasons with the Cubs and was a revered leader as the 2016 club ended the team’s 108-year championship drought. He spent the past three years in Chicago’s front office and was widely viewed as a potential replacement for Maddon, who averaged 94 wins while in the Chicago dugout.

  HARTLEY — Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn survived a night that saw them commit five turnovers and had over 100 yards in penalties to upset Gehlen Catholic 16-8 Friday night, ending the Jays playoff hopes for 2019.  Freshman quarterback, Kooper Ebel, tossed a 70-yard scoring pass to Noah Adams with 30 seconds to play in the first half to snap an 8-all tie, putting the Hawks in front to stay.  H-M-S scored first on a safety with 25 seconds to play in the first quarter.  The Hawks then added a touchdown following the free kick by Gehlen with Mitchell Peters scampering 24-yards, extending the lead to 8-0.  The Jays tied the score with 4:37 to play in the half on a 33-yard TD-pass from Ethan Peters to Ethan Herbst.  Peters then threw a two-point conversion pass to Jeff Augustine for the tie.  Gehlen had four trips deep into H-M-S territory in the second half only to be denied points.  The Jays caught a break on their final possession when punter Traegen Kramer was roughed to give Gehlen a first down and renewed hope.  Peters then hooked up with Herbst on pass plays of 24 and 37 yards, setting the Jays up at the 15 yard line with a little over a  minute left in the game.  But four straight quarterback sacks followed, ending the threat.  Gehlen ends the season at 5-4 with a 3-2 district record.
