CINCINNATI -- Dodgers left fielder Shane Victorino was out of the lineup for a second game Saturday, but his injured left wrist was improved, manager Don Mattingly said.
"He's better today," Mattingly said. "He can do a few more things. He's playing catch and I think he's going to hit inside. Last night he couldn't even play defense."
Victorino was injured hitting the wall while chasing Danny Espinosa's fourth-inning double in the corner Thursday night against the Nationals in Washington.
He again was replaced in the lineup by Juan Rivera.
