Malone stayed awake pills remain on the table in his hotel room after Game 3 of the World Series.
Malone kept his head down and stayed focused on the task at hand.
Malones first thought he had an infection on his neck but that didn’t seem to be the case.
He didn’t realize how much time had passed, so he kept his eyes on the game.
“I don’t know how many games I’ve been out here.
That’s all I know,” Malone said.
“I’m trying to get better, and I’m trying not to get worse.”
The Marlins won the game 7-4 after going on a 14-0 run in the sixth inning.
Malones and the Marlins rallied with a four-run fifth inning.
Malones was hit in the face by a pitch and fell to the ground.
Malones was helped off the field and taken to the hospital, but he remained alert and talking.
The Marlins were without second baseman Jose Reyes, who was pulled from Friday night’s game against the Phillies.
Reyes, an infielder who hit three homers, is in a medically induced coma after he was struck in the left lower back with a fastball.
Malone has a fractured collarbone.
The Marlins will wear masks when Malones is available to take his medications.
Maloney, who has a history of migraines, is out indefinitely after having surgery on a dislocated right shoulder.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Malone’s first reaction was that he was getting tired.
He also said Malones didn’t think he had any neck pain.
He said Maloney will have to stay awake, which he said he was able to do with help from his family.
He said he is taking his medication, which includes the sleeping pill Ambien.
Mattingly also said the Marlins are aware of the potential side effects of the medication, but said the team is still confident it is working.
