Red Sox hire Alex Cora as new manager

BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox hired Houston Astros bench coach Alex Cora as manager Sunday, turning to a player from their 2007 World Series championship roster to help the team out of its current playoff slump.

"Returning to the Red Sox and the city of Boston is a dream come true for me and my family," Cora said in a statement released by the team. "I look forward to working towards the ultimate goal of winning another championship for this city and its great fans."

The Red Sox announced the hire Sunday, a day after Cora's Astros eliminated the New York Yankees in the AL Championship Series. With two days off before Houston opens the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston had a chance to hire Cora without running afoul of baseball's ban on major moves during the Series.
