BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox have interviewed Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for their open managerial job.
Sveum, a third base coach with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2005, was the second person interviewed this week. The club brought in Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin on Monday.
Both hope to take the job vacated when Terry Francona left following a record September collapse. After holding a nine-game lead in the wild-card race through Sept. 3, the Red Sox missed the playoffs with a loss on the final night of the regular season.
