Florida Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez resigns

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (AP) - Florida Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez has resigned with his team on a nine-game losing streak.

Bench coach Brandon Hyde will manage the Marlins against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, but the club will begin a search for an interim manager.

Rodriguez was in his first full season as the Marlins' manager. He became interim manager June 23 of last year after Fredi Gonzalez was fired. He was given the job permanently five days later, becoming the first Puerto Rican-born manager in major league history. Florida went 46-46 under Rodriguez, who opened the season as the Marlins' Triple-A manager in New Orleans.

The Marlins fell to 1-17 in June with Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Rays.
