Gibson leaves D-backs game with illness

By Anthony Fenech / | 08/06/11

PHOENIX -- D-backs manager Kirk Gibson left Saturday night's game against the Dodgers early with an undisclosed illness.

"I thought he was fine during batting practice," bench coach and acting manager Alan Trammell said. "I didn't know anything was wrong, but right before the game he told me he was having trouble."

"He said, 'Be ready,' so I took the lineup card out and I told them that there's a possibility that I might be coming in and just to be prepared," Trammell said.

He said that he thought Gibson left in the second inning of the D-backs' 5-3 loss.

"Gibby was there into the first inning, maybe the second and then he said, 'I gotta go,'" Trammell said.
