- Dylan Bundy, pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, struggled on Monday night
- The 28-year-old was unwell in hot conditions at Yankee Stadium, New York
- He vomited off the mound and was replaced in the game shortly afterwards
- His team manager later admitted Bundy was dealing with ‘heat exhaustion’
The starting pitcher for Los Angeles Angels, Dylan Bundy, was replaced after vomiting during the game against New York Yankees on Monday.
The players at Yankee Stadium were battling 32-degree (Celsius) heat and it was all too much for Bundy to handle.
He had already made a shaky start to the game by giving up a two-run lead and things then went from bad to worse for the 28-year-old.
With sweat dripping off his cap, Bundy stepped back off the mound, bent over and vomited on the stiflingly hot night.
The Angels’ starting pitcher was then seen trudging off, cleaning himself up with a towel before heading sheepishly into the changing room.
The team later explained that Bundy was struggling with heat exhaustion and the humidity was measured at 50 per cent.

Angels’ manager Joe Maddon revealed that Bundy was feeling better after the game’s conclusion.
He said: ‘He’s better. I was really upset and concerned. But after he threw up, he felt better underneath. I guess heat exhaustion was part of the issue.
‘He told me even after the first that he did not feel that good, but [he] went out for the second and just knew he might get ill, and he did.
‘This guy is as tough as they come, and I’ve been singing his praises for a long time.’

Bundy was replaced by Jose Suarez, who staff had already told to warm up when the starter was finding life difficult early in the game.
The rough night for Bundy was a continuation of a poor season so far, winning just one of his eight appearances for the team.
Suarez filled in adeptly and the Angels went on to secure a 5-3 victory.
