Red Sox fire manager Farrell after 2nd straight ALDS defeat

BOSTON (AP) John Farrell racked up a lot of wins and World Series title with the Boston Red Sox. But past success wasn't enough to save his job after consecutive early playoff exits.

Boston fired Farrell on Wednesday after the team's second straight loss in the AL Division Series.

The Red Sox announced the move less than 48 hours after they were eliminated from the World Series hunt with a 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros . Farrell's contract had been scheduled to run through the 2018 season.
