Padres skipper Bud Black was named the National League Manager of the Year Wednesday in a vote by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy finished third, behind second-place Dusty Baker, who won the award while managing the Giants in 1993, 1997 and 2000.

Black received 16 first-place votes to 13 for Baker, who led Cincinnati to its first playoff berth since 1995. Baker was named on 27 of 30 ballots compared to 26 for Black.

Black and Bochy are the lone Padres winners for the manager award.

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire claimed AL honors.
