MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has a stomach virus that sent him home during Minnesota’s game against Baltimore.

The Twins announced in the eighth inning Wednesday night that Gardenhire had left the ballpark because of the illness. Bench coach Scott Ullger took over, and the Orioles won 2-1.

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.
