The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their third straight win on Saturday morning, but they will have to beat the New York Mets without catcher A.J. Ellis, who is sitting for the second straight game. Ellis has left knee inflammation though MRI results came back negative and he expects to play on Sunday, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Ellis is tied for fifth in the majors with 73 starts behind the plate, but will sit in favor of Matt Treanor today. Treanor is in an 0-for-23 slump.
Chris Capuano goes for his 10th win of the season on Saturday, facing Miguel Batista for the Mets. Here are the starting lineups for the second game of the series.
