Red Sox’s Chris Sale In Hospital With Stomach Illness, Being Held Overnight

The Boston Red Sox got some unfortunate news Sunday night.

Prior to Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, pitcher Chris Sale was sent to Massachusetts General Hospital with a stomach illness. He is being kept overnight for further evaluation.

There’s no word on the severity of Sale’s condition, or whether his future playoff availability is in any jeopardy. The Red Sox ace surrendered two runs and lasted just four innings Saturday in Game 1 against the Houston Astros.

We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
