How do I add fields to output from predict

I need to locate and alert on counts that are not within predicted bounds. It seems simple enough using predict, but predict does not include any information regarding the source. Here is a run anywhere search which illustrates my concern

index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd_access* | timechart span=1d count as Gets | predict Gets | eval queueManager=if(1=1, mq_ir360_qmgr,"no") | rename upper95(prediction(Gets)) as ceiling | rename lower95(prediction(Gets)) as floor | eval excession=if(Gets > ceiling, "100", "0") | eval recession=if(Get < floor, "-100", "0") | table _time Gets, sourcetype

As you can see, there is no mention of the sourcetype in the results. I plan to use this within a map loop to check thousands of different hosts and I need to know which host contains an outlier. I tried to add information, but it is not in the pipe, so I can't(see second example) .

How would I get the sourcetype in my output?

I believe the reason you don't see the sourcetype is because of the timechart command. Try including the sourcetype field as an output to that command. Something like this may work

... |  timechart span=1d first(sourcetype) as sourcetype count as Gets | predict Gets | table _time Gets sourcetype
