"I think we've pulled together as a team," right fielder Nate Schierholtz said. "We've had a lot of unfortunate injuries the whole year. To still be in first place shows we've battled through it so far, and things should be better."
"I was hoping it would feel better right now," Schierholtz said. "I might have to remind myself I did break it. ... I don't know if I made it worse playing through it. Everything in me wants to play. If I get back to where I was last week and back track, I can't help. I can't play in that kind of pain. If I come back to soon, I'm going to be back where I started."
