"Matsuzaka did not speak with reporters after the game, but he issued a statement through a team publicist.
'I felt very good coming out of my warmups in the bullpen, and I was looking forward to pitching in this game,' he said in the statement. 'But, all of a sudden, I didn't feel too well.
'I tried my best to take the team as deep into the game as possible to fulfill my responsibility as the starter. I regret that I ended up being a burden on my teammates today. I'll do my best to prepare for my next start.' "
