Gardenhire feeling better, back in dugout

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he was feeling better on Thursday after leaving Wednesday's game with flu-like symptoms.

Gardenhire left Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Orioles in the fifth inning, and bench coach Scott Ullger served as manager in his absence.

But Gardenhire said he felt good enough to return on Thursday, and was back as manager for the series finale.

"I'm good," Gardenhire said. "It was just a little stomach virus last night. So I shut it down."
