Dodgers Vs. Mets Starting Lineups: Andre Ethier Out For Second Straight Game

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to snap out of their slump that has seen them lose five straight games and nine of their last 10 contests. The Dodgers host the New York Mets on Friday night in the second game of a four-game series at Dodger Stadium.

Andre Ethier is out of the lineup for the second straight game after straining his left oblique on Wednesday in San Francisco. Ethier was able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, and is listed as day-to-day by the Dodgers. Aaron Harang gets the start for the Dodgers on Friday, facing the amazing knuckleball of R.A. Dickey, looking for his 12th win of the season for the Mets.

Here are the Ethier-less lineups for Friday night from Dodger Stadium:

Mets (41-36)

Torres CF
Tejada SS
Wright 3B
Davis 1B
Duda RF
Murphy 2B
Niewenhuis LF

Dodgers (43-34)
