Noesi said that he felt better after the first game because he was getting constant treatment. But the area was tightening up at the end of the night.
"When you are not doing anything, it's going to get tight," Noesi said.
He was diagnosed with a lower back contusion and is listed as day to day but didn't want to risk further injury by staying in the game after being struck.
"Yeah, it got him in a good spot I guess. It tightened up on him," Ventura said of Noesi. "At this point it's just day to day."
