New York Mets manager Terry Collins has gone to the hospital less than 30 minutes after the game has started between the New York Mets and the Milwaukee Brewers. Collins is said to stay in the hospital despite him leaving the ballpark on his own. The Mets manager has complained he was not feeling well before the game started.
According to ESPN, Mets manager, Terry Collins has not felt well before the game has started between the Mets and Brewers this Sunday. Although he didn’t feel well, he is said to have felt better by the time he left Miller Park for Froedtert Hospital. Assistant general manager John Ricco, relayed the news.
Collins will stay in the hospital as further evaluation will be made before he will be released. At 67 years old, he is currently the oldest manager in MLB. While Collins was in the hospital the Mets have suffered defeat at the hands of the Brewers with a 5-3 loss.
During the game, the Mets made three errors, as reported by Newsday. Steven Matz has also allowed five runs in six innings. It has been noted that it was one of the worst games played by the Mets so far this season.
The game against the Brewers also ended a long 10-game road trip for the Mets. Perhaps with so much going on during their trip, the Mets couldn’t maintain focus through the game. It is also likely because of the trip that Collins had to rest and check into the hospital. Some of the players certainly felt that fatigue played a part in the loss.
“I think a 10-day road trip if anything was more of a cause to that,” right fielder Curtis Granderson said. This has also been the observation of bench coach Keon Broxton, who took over from Collins after the latter went to the hospital. The Mets have returned to New York after the game. Collins will remain in the hospital until tests are complete and has been cleared to check out.
