Worth noting

• With A.J. Ellis catching Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, manager Don Mattingly said Matt Treanor will be the Dodgers' backstop for Game 2. Mattingly wouldn't discuss any other possible lineup changes for the doubleheader.

• The doubleheader is the Dodgers' first since April 27, 2010, against the Mets at Citi Field. After a rainout at Nationals Park last season, the Dodgers and Nats had a doubleheader scheduled for Sept. 8, but the second game was rained out and never rescheduled.

• Hanley Ramirez is batting .342 (144-for-421) against the Nationals in his career. His 27 homers against the Nats trail only four active players: Andruw Jones (47), Chipper Jones (41) and Ryan Howard (36).
