MIAMI (AP) – With their new old manager, the free-falling Florida Marlins had the same old result.

 

Jered Weaver pitched seven innings and the Los Angeles Angels spoiled 80-year-old Jack McKeon’s return to the dugout Monday night with a 2-1 win over the Marlins, who tied a franchise record with their 11th consecutive loss.

 

The game came hours after the Marlins introduced McKeon as their interim manager for the rest of the season. He came out of retirement to replace Edwin Rodriguez, who resigned Sunday.

 

The change in leadership failed to inspire a reversal by the Marlins, who are 1-19 in June. The losing streak is their longest
since 1998.
