Chris Sale admitted to hospital due to stomach illness

Per Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, the Red Sox announced that starter Chris Sale was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital on Sunday due to a stomach illness. He is being kept overnight for observation.

Sale, 29, started Game 1 of the ALCS for the Red Sox against the Astros on Saturday. He lasted four innings, relenting a pair of runs on one hit and four walks with five strikeouts. It isn’t clear if Sale began experiencing symptoms during last night’s start or if they began on Tuesday.

Assuming he doesn’t get pushed back in the rotation, Sale would be on target to start Game 5 of the ALCS (if necessary), which would take place on Thursday in Houston.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
