After an infield single in the first inning of Tuesday's day game, Hunter Pence limped around the bases but refused to return to the dugout between innings. The training staff was waiting.

Pence stayed in the game for two more at-bats, finally leaving in the sixth inning. Afterward, Charlie Manuel said he expected Pence to play in Game 2 of the day's doubleheader.

At some point before the lineup card was filled out, the trainers finally had their say.

"Our doctors checked him out and they told me he would prefer him not to play the second game," Manuel said. "Hunter was wanting to play."
