CHICAGO (AP) _ The wife of Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa was admitted to a hospital emergency room with an undisclosed illness Tuesday.

Sonia Sosa, 25, arrived at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital about 5 a.m.

``She is in good condition and doing well,″ hospital spokesman Stuart Greenblatt said, adding there was no timetable for her release.

Neither the team nor hospital spokesmen would comment on broadcast reports that Sonia Sosa was ill after drinking beer and taking prescription medication.

Sosa, tied with Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals for the major league home run lead with 61, was with his team in Philadelphia. Cubs spokesman Benji De La Fuente said there were no plans for Sosa to return to Chicago to be with his wife.
