ST. LOUIS» Rock­ies pitching coach Steve Fos­ter suf­fered chest pains Mon­day be­fore the club’s game against St. Louis and was taken to a hos­pi­tal for tests, man­ager Bud Black said.

“Steve is do­ing OK,” Black said af­ter the Rock­ies’ 8-2 loss to the Car­di­nals. “He had some chest pains ear­lier in the morn­ing, and (trainer) Keith (Dug­ger) and a col­lec­tion of other peo­ple said, ‘Let’s go get this checked out.’

“He’s at a lo­cal hos­pi­tal, go­ing through a bat­tery of tests. And what I’m hear­ing so far is that he’s do­ing well, and things are check­ing out in a good way.”

Fos­ter, who turns 51 on Aug. 16, is in his third sea­son as Colorado’s pitching coach.

Black said the de­ci­sion to send Fos­ter to the hos­pi­tal was “pre­cau­tion­ary.”

“We ex­pect ‘Fostie’ to be back to­mor­row,” Black said.
