Dodgers rest Ryan Theriot for a second day

September 1, 2010 | 12:06 pm

Dodgers second baseman Ryan Theriot was scratched from the starting lineup for a second day Wednesday due to a sore left knee, with Ronnie Belliard again taking his place.

Theriot "said it felt much better today, but I think with the off-day tomorrow . . . I’d just as soon sit him today," Manager Joe Torre said before the Dodgers closed their three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies in a noon game at Dodger Stadium.

Recently acquired from the Chicago Cubs, Theriot was hurt Monday night when the Phillies' Jayson Werth slid into him trying to break up an attempted double-play.

Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (11-8) faces Phillies right-hander Roy Oswalt (9-13) in Wednesday's game. Here are the starting lineups:


Podsednik LF
Carroll SS
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Loney 1B
Blake 3B
Belliard 2B
Barajas C
Kershaw P


Rollins SS
Utley 2B
Polanco 3B
Howard 1B
Werth RF
Victorino CF
Ibanez LF
Ruiz C
Oswalt P
