ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Rockies lost their 11th consecutive game Wednesday night, falling to the Los Angeles Angels, 2-1, in 11 innings. But before the game, manager Walt Weiss was rushed to a hospital where he underwent surgery for an appendectomy.
Weiss complained of stomach pains before batting practice and left Angel Stadium with head trainer Keith Dugger. Weiss is expected to be discharged from the hospital on Thursday afternoon and there is no timetable for when he will return to the dugout.
The Rockies’ losing streak is their longest since 2000.
Bench coach Tom Runnells will manage the team in Weiss’ absence.
The Rockies begin a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night and return to Coors Field on Monday.
