Pitcher slated to start Game 2
Thomson, slated to start Game 2 of the divisional series next week, pitched just three innings before leaving with a stiff back. Jones left in the fifth inning after being hit with a pitch near his right wrist.
Jones, four RBI short of a ninth straight season of 100, was hit by Cubs' starter Carlos Zambrano and winced as a trainer worked on him.
