Gardenhire leaves Twins game with stomach virus


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire left Minnesota's game against Baltimore because of a stomach virus.

The Twins announced in the eighth inning Wednesday night that Gardenhire had left the ballpark and went home because of the illness. Bench coach Scott Ullger took over, and the Orioles won 2-1. Ullger said afterward that Gardenhire departed in the fifth and that he should be fine.

This isn't the first time Gardenhire has been sick. He's left the dugout several times before because he wasn't feeling well, and in 2005 had a series of heart palpitations that sent him for medical testing.

He is in his 11th season as Twins manager.
