"We just gritted through without our manager," starter Lucas Giolito said. "Joe's done a fantastic job in the situation that he's had to manage. Team got together and we got a good win."

Renteria returned to Target Field midway through Monday's game to collect his belongings before heading back to the hospital.

"Our thoughts and prayers were with him the whole evening," McEwing said. "He's always in our mind. He's such an amazing leader and amazing person."
