SF manager Bochy to be hospitalized overnight

MIAMI — The San Francisco Giants say manager Bruce Bochy has been admitted to a Miami hospital after falling ill and will miss Monday night’s game against the Marlins.

The Giants did not specify what sent the 61-year-old Bochy to the hospital Monday morning. They said in a statement that he is “resting comfortably” and will be monitored overnight.

The Giants say they expect him to return Tuesday. Bochy led the team to World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Bench coach Ron Wotus will serve as manager in the opener of the three-game series in Miami.

Bochy underwent a heart procedure in February 2015 to insert two stents.
