What Happened to Adrian Houser?

Adrian Houser Puked/Vomited on the mound during a game.

Houser misfielded a ground ball hit at him by Elvis Andrus on August 11, 2019, in a game against the Texas Rangers.

Shortly after, Houser walked to the back of the mound and vomited, marking the second time he had vomited on the mound during a game. He then went on to strike out ten batters and complete the game as the game’s winning pitcher.

Adrian Houser bounced back after becoming sick on the field before the fourth hitter of the game and pitched his finest game of his career on Saturday at Miller Park, striking out a career-high 10 batters while keeping the Rangers to one run in six innings of the Brewers’ fifth straight victory.

Milwaukee is now 1 1/2 games behind the Cubs for first place in the National League Central.

Last June, after becoming physically unwell in front of a crowd of 40,000 or more at Miller Park, Houser was able to laugh it off, an unhappy event that he repeated Saturday in front of 41,903 more fans during a scoreless first inning.

When Houser squatted behind the mound after kicking a comebacker for an error, he fell unwell again.

Houser resumed throwing and finished the inning after a visit from the team’s medical staff, a sip of water, and a quick clean-up job by a member of the grounds crew.

“At first, I had to take a step back a little bit,” said Keston Hiura, the Brewers’ second baseman, who launched his 14th home run in the third inning. “But I knew he was ready to leave once it happened.”

“I’m probably just sick of myself for not making that play,” Houser said.

It was the start of a fantastic outing for Houser, who limited Texas to three hits and one walk. Before allowing his first hit, Logan Forsythe’s infield single in the fifth inning, he struck out seven batters.
