In the third inning, it started to get real bad. It felt like I was being stabbed in the side. I tried to go back out for the fourth, but they took me out. The next day, I was in the hospital with doctors trying to figure out what was wrong.

The good news is I didn't need surgery. The bad news is that it ended my season. They told me we'd start with nothing but rest until at least Sept. 25, then go from there.
