Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson will remain in a hospital for at least a second night after being hit in the head by a line drive.
Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said Nelson would stay Friday night as a precaution. Counsell said there are no indications at this point that Nelson sustained a concussion.
Nelson was struck in the back of the head Thursday night by a liner hit by Tommy Pham of the St. Louis Cardinals. Nelson was face down on the mound for about a minute before walking off the field.

Counsell spoke with Nelson on Friday. The pitcher said he wants to make his next start on Tuesday in Chicago against the Cubs. Counsell said the team would wait a little longer before deciding when the Nelson would throw, but said he was confident the right-hander would pitch again this season.
