David Bell hired as Cincinnati Reds manager

CINCINNATI (AP) — David Bell has been hired as manager of the Cincinnati Reds, tasked with helping turn around a team that skidded to a 67-95 record and last-place finish in the NL Central.

The Reds said Sunday he has been given a three-year contract that includes a team option for 2022. The Cincinnati native is to be introduced at a news conference Monday.

Cincinnati fired Bryan Price after a 3-15 start, and Jim Riggleman was interim manager for the rest of the season.

Bell was a minor league manager for the Reds from 2009-12, became the Chicago Cubs’ third base coach in 2013, St. Louis’ assistant hitting coach the following year and the Cardinals’ bench coach for the next three years. He was San Francisco’s vice president of player development last season.

Who’s next after Speaker Ryan? Battle for power looms in GOP

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are at risk of plunging into a messy leadership battle after the November election because they lack a clear heir apparent to the retiring speaker, Paul Ryan.

President Donald Trump signaled he’d be happy with next-in-line Kevin McCarthy, the majority leader and a longtime ally Trump calls “My Kevin.”

But Trump is also saying kind words about the No. 3 Republican, Steve Scalise. And there’s a third lawmaker in the mix: conservative Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who’s a longshot to become House speaker.

Republicans hope to hold the House majority in next month’s election, but expect to lose some seats. McCarthy told The Associated Press, “it’s going to be close, but I still think we keep the majority.”

Nearly 36 miles of pipeline replaced after gas explosions

BOSTON (AP) — The utility company involved in last month’s explosions and fires in Massachusetts says it has replaced nearly 36 miles of main pipeline in the area.

Columbia Gas announced Sunday that it’s 80 percent through its work replacing 45 miles of main pipeline, and about halfway through its work replacing 6,100 service lines to homes and businesses.

The company says 151 construction crews are expected to continue work Sunday in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover.

The Sept. 13 explosions and fires killed a teenager and injured at least 25 other people.

Federal authorities say natural gas lines became overpressurized after Columbia Gas failed to account for critical pressure sensors as workers replaced century-old cast-iron pipes in Lawrence.

The company says it has paid $23 million in claims from customers.

Khachanov beats Mannarino in 55 minutes to win Kremlin Cup

MOSCOW (AP) — Karen Khachanov breezed past Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 6-2 to win his third career ATP title at the Kremlin Cup on Sunday.

Khachanov’s powerful serve dictated the match, as it has done all tournament. He fired in six aces and wrapped up the win in 55 minutes.

The 22-year-old Russian was only broken once all week and faced a single break point against Mannarino, which he saved.

Khachanov has won all three of his tour finals to date, including a win in Marseille in February, while Mannarino has lost all six of the finals he has played.

Victory means Khachanov is guaranteed to enter the top 20 in the rankings for the first time, surpassing Daniil Medvedev as the top-ranked Russian.
