"[Victorino] feels improved from yesterday and last night, but there's still some tightness in the lower back," manager John Farrell said. "He is day to day, and we're holding him out so he can continue to get treatment."
Farrell announced after Game 1 that Victorino, who is hitting .311 with a .377 on-base percentage, would not play in the second game.
