Illness contributes to Wright's early exit
By Steve Gartner / MLB.com
Wright said he started feeling sick after the fourth or fifth inning.
"I felt real nauseous and throwing up a lot," Wright said. "I didn't feel like I was helping out much."
Wright said he felt about the same after the game and plans to take some medicine to help his condition.
"If I can play I'm going to play," Wright said. "It was the fact that I didn't think I could play or do anything I could to help those guys out there."
Wright had two hits before exiting the game. He hopes to play in Thursday's series finale.
