Bloomquist remains out of lineup with back pain
PHILADELPHIA -- Willie Bloomquist, who has been dealing with back pain, was not in the D-backs' lineup for the fourth straight game on Friday.

"I think he'll be available," manager Kirk Gibson said before the game. "I just wasn't gonna put him in the [starting] lineup today."

Bloomquist wanted to start, according to Gibson, but the skipper wants to make sure he's OK first. He was scheduled to take batting practice before Friday's series opener against the Phillies, but rain canceled the D-backs' turn for BP.
