 ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier were both out of the Los Angeles Dodgers starting lineup for Game 2 of the NL championship series Saturday because of injuries.
Ethier was out with lingering soreness after playing 13 innings in center field the previous night. Ramirez was scratched about a half-hour before the first pitch with sore ribs. He was hit by a pitch in the first inning of the Game 1 loss.
Earlier in the day, Mattingly described Ramirez as ``iffy'' and said there might be a change prior to game time. Ramirez also made a leaping catch on a soft liner by Matt Holliday in the bottom of the first, then was bent over in the dugout while being treated by a trainer.
Skip Schumaker started in center field in place of Ethier and Nick Punto started at shortstop.
The Dodgers Carl Crawford and Mark Ellis in the top two spots of their batting order but moved everyone else up a slot. Adrian Gonzalez was batting third and Yasiel Puig became the cleanup hitter.
Schumaker hit seventh and Punto was eighth.
Mattingly thought Ethier would be available later in the game to pinch hit or in a double switch.
