NEW YORK -- Dodgers catcher A.J. Elliswill miss his second consecutive game Saturday because of a sore left knee.

Ellis underwent an MRI exam in the morning that revealed nothing more than inflammation. He said he would “for sure” play in the Dodgers’ series finale against the New York Mets on Sunday.

“It’s been a little sore for the last 10 days or so, but that’s normal in the season for me,” Ellis said.

Backup Matt Treanor will start again in Ellis' place.

The Dodgers lineup on Saturday against the Mets:

Bobby Abreu LF

Adam Kennedy 2B

Matt Kemp CF

Andre Ethier RF

James Loney 1B

Juan Uribe 3B

Luis Cruz SS

Matt Treanor C

Chris Capuano P
