Worth noting

• Despite the Dodgers being eliminated from the playoff race Tuesday, Mattingly went with his everyday lineup Wedneday with ace Clayton Kershaw on the mound. There was one player missing, however, as A.J. Ellis was given the day off despite wanting to play.

Ellis, who hit a two-run homer Tuesday night, was replaced by rookie Tim Federowicz since Matt Treanor strained his left side muscle during batting practice the day before.
