Here are today’s lineups:
Russell Martin is out of the lineup with a swollen thumb. Per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the thumb has bothered Martin for some time:
Martin, who later acknowledged that the thumb on his catching hand started to bother him when the Dodgers were in Arizona at the beginning of the month, came out near the end of the game.
“I only felt it when I miscaught a ball,” the catcher said. “Tonight was the first time I felt it swinging the bat.”
Martin hadn’t told the training staff about his thumb, but his secret was exposed when Torre saw him grimace while taking a swing in the eighth inning. Torre pulled Martin from the game and replaced him with A.J. Ellis.
