BALTIMORE - Rob Manfred was elected baseballs 10th commissioner Thursday, winning a three-man competition to succeed Bud Selig and given a mandate by the tradition-bound sport to recapture young fans and speed play in an era that has seen competition increase and attention spans shrink.

. The 55-year-old, who has worked for Major League Baseball in roles with ever-increasing authority since 1998, will take over from the 80-year-old Selig on Jan. 25. Its a generational change much like the NBA undertook when Adam Silver, then 51, replaced 71-year-old David Stern as commissioner in February. And like Silver, he was his bosss pick. Manfred beat out Boston Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner in the first contested vote for a new commissioner in 46 years. The third candidate, MLB Executive Vice-President of Business Tim Brosnan, dropped out just before the start of balloting. "I am tremendously honoured by the confidence that the owners showed in me today," Manfred said. "I have very big shoes to fill." Selig has led baseball since September 1992, first as chairman of the sports executive council following Fay Vincents forced resignation and as commissioner since July 1998. After announcing his intention to retire many times only to change his mind, he said last September that he really, truly planned to leave in January 2015. One baseball executive who attended the meeting, speaking on condition of anonymity because details of the 4 1/2-hour session were not be divulged, said Manfred was elected on approximately the sixth ballot. The initial vote was 20-10 for Manfred, three short of the required three-quarters majority. His total increased to 21 on the second and 22 on the third. While teams put written ballots into envelopes, keeping their choices secret, from team official speeches it was evident that Tampa Bays Stuart Sternberg and Milwaukees Mark Attanasio likely switched, the person said. Manfreds total dropped to 20, then increased to 22 before a dinner break. He got the needed 23rd vote on the next, apparently from Washington. Owners then made the final vote unanimous. The person said it appeared Arizona, Boston, the Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati, the Los Angeles Angels, Oakland and Toronto had been the final holdouts. White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf and Toronto president Paul Beeston spoke out strongly against Manfred, the person said. Angels owner Arte Moreno joined Reinsdorf in leading Werners support. "While Rob may not have been my initial choice for commissioner, the conclusion of a very good process was to name Rob as the person best positioned to help baseball endure and grow even stronger for the next generation of fans," Reinsdorf said in a statement. "Todays decision was reached by 30 owners voting separately but speaking, in the end, with one voice." Manfred started with baseball in the late 1980s as an outside counsel in labour negotiations and was hired by Selig as executive vice-president for labour relations and human resources in 1998. He received an expanded role of executive vice-president of economics and league affairs in 2012 and last September was promoted to chief operating officer, becoming the likely heir apparent. He helped lead negotiations for baseballs last three labour contracts and the joint drug agreement that was instituted in 2002. In the last contested election, in 1968-69, owners turned to their outside labour lawyer, Bowie Kuhn. The 55-year-old Manfred, whose term was not specified, grew up in Rome, New York about an hours drive from the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. He must address issues that include decreased interest in baseball among younger people and an average game time that has stretched past three hours. "There is no doubt in my mind he has the training, the temperament, the experience to be a very successful commissioner," Selig said, "and I have justifiably very high expectations." Baseball has had labour peace since a 7 1/2-month strike in 1994-95 that cancelled the World Series. Talks to replace the collective bargaining agreement with players that expires after the 2016 season will be conducted with a new union leadership headed by former All-Star first baseman Tony Clark. "I have known Rob for more than 15 years, and Im confident that his vast experience in all aspects of the sport will serve his commissionership well," Clark said in a statement.

. After two months of mediocrity, perhaps the Washington Nationals have turned the page. Strasburg struck out 11 in seven innings Wednesday night and the Nationals kept the Philadelphia Phillies bats quiet yet again in an 8-4, rain-interrupted win.

. Buffalos defensive co-ordinator had his second interview with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner on Tuesday night, a person familiar with the Browns plans told The Associated Press.PHOENIX -- Against Arizona, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the dominant team they are supposed to be. Against everyone else, not so much. Zack Greinke threw eight sharp innings, Yasiel Puig and Scott Van Slyke homered and the Dodgers added to their mastery of the Diamondbacks with a 7-0 victory on Friday night. Los Angeles improved to 8-1 against Arizona this season, and the Dodgers are 15-19 against everybody else. "They have outplayed us, outpitched us," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "The guy that beat us tonight has his best stuff going this year." Dodgers manager Don Mattingly downplayed the dominance. "Theres teams you hit well as a player, you pitch good against," he said. "This is one of those teams we played well against this year. Hopefully that continues." Greinke (7-1), in his longest outing of the season, allowed two or fewer runs for the 21st consecutive game, the longest such streak in the majors since at least 1914. Asked how much he thinks about that he said, "not much, actually" "Its not like one of the more important streaks," Greinke said. "Its not a real big deal." He gave up five hits, struck out six, walked two and had an RBI double. "I forgot how fun it is to catch him," said A.J. Ellis, just back from the disabled list. Puig had three hits and drove in two runs. He and Van Slyke hit solo homers off Wade Miley (3-4) as the Diamondbacks fell to 4-16 at Chase Field. Van Slyke does to Miley what the Dodgers do to the Diamondbacks. He is 7 for 16 in his career against the left-hander with four home runs, three this year. Puig, who fell a triple shy of the cycle, extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games. "Im trying to get hits and put a swing on good pitches," Puig said to reporters in Spanish. "I wasnt worried hitting for the cycle or anything like that." Mattingly said Puig "is getting better all the time and hes getting closer to being that player that has a chance to make a huge impact.

. ." Brian Wilson, who entered the game with a 10.22 ERA, pitched the ninth to complete the shutout. The Diamondbacks have not led in any of their six home games against Los Angeles, two of them in Sydney, Australia, to open the season. Miley gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings, with three walks and three strikeouts. Puig got the Dodgers going with a drive into the right-field seats on a 2-2 pitch from Miley with one out in third. It was his eighth home run of the season. The bottom of the Los Angeles order accounted for two runs in the fourth. Van Slyke led off with a double, then scored on Ellis single. Greinke followed with an RBI double to the gap in left-centre. They were the first RBIs of the season for Ellis and Greinke. Van Slyke hit Mileys first pitch in the sixth high off the batters eye in centre field, far above the 407-foot sign and it was 4-0. Los Angeles got two runs off reliever Randall Delgado in the seventh. Puig singled and scored when Hanley Ramirez doubled. Matt Kemp brought Ramirez home with a fielders choice. The Dodgers added an unearned run in the eighth when shortstop Chris Owings, trying to nab speedy Dee Gordon for a double play, threw the ball 10 rows into the seats above the Los Angeles dugout. Gordon scored from first on Puigs double. In the ninth, umpire Quinn Wolcott ruled that Miguel Montero had beaten out an infield hit but the Dodgers challenged and the call was reversed on review. NOTES: The Dodgers have won 15 of the last 19 games against the Diamondbacks. ... Puig has 33 RBIs. ... Miley has allowed 10 home runs, most of any Arizona starter. ... The Diamondbacks Paul Goldschmidt struck out three times. ... Arizonas 17-year-old minor league pitcher Argeny Hiciano has been suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a banned substance. ... The Dodgers send LHP Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.74 ERA) to the mound Saturday, while Arizonas Chase Anderson (1-0, 1.69) makes his second major league start, first at home.
