MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Back problems sent Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke to a hospital emergency room in Chicago.

Roenicke tells WTMJ radio back pain kept him awake all night so he called the team doctors Tuesday morning. They took Roenicke to a hospital.

Roenicke says his back sometimes "gets a little squirrely." He says he plans to coach Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
