Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Manager Dusty Baker agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Cincinnati Reds on Monday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Baker this season led the Reds to their second National League Central division title in the last three years. They were ousted from the NLDS in five games by the San Francisco Giants.

“There’s work left to be done,” Baker said. “I didn’t want to leave on a note that we still had work to do.”

The 63-year-old Baker has been at the helm of the Reds since 2008, compiling a record of 419-391. Previously he managed the San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs.
