ST. LOUIS (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder Manny Ramirez and catcher Russell Martin are out of the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Dodgers manager Joe Torre said Saturday that Ramirez was feeling better and could be available to pinch hit. The slugger was removed in the first inning of Friday night’s 8-4 loss with tightness in his right calf.

Martin, who has been bothered by soreness in his left thumb, left Friday’s game in the eighth inning. Torre said Martin likely will sit out the next two days but will not be placed on the disabled list.
