Oh, Schmidt: Kemp, Schmidt Injured In Home Opener
In the fifth, Jason Schmidt was injured on a play at first when Nomar misplayed a ball; Schmidt attempted to assist him, but ended up pulling his hamstring. He was bent over and rubbing his sore hammy before Stan Conte pulled him off the mound.
Update: And Juan Pierre spent a couple seconds on the floor after making a diving catch of Garrett Atkins' sinking line drive off Schmidt's replacement, Mark Hendrickson. I might consider that an improvement if it takes him out for any appreciable period of time.
Kemp will be taken to the hospital for precautionary x-rays.
Update 2: Schmidt says his hamstring is feeling better now that he's in the clubhouse.
