ST. LOUIS -- Andre Ethier is back on the Dodgers' bench. Skip Schumaker will start in center field for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday. Ethier limped out of the visiting clubhouse after a 3-2 loss on Friday night with a team doctor by his side. Ethier started Game 1 in center field, his first start since Sept. 13. Ethier has been hampered by discomfort above his left ankle -- a condition similar to shin splints -- and he was limited to pinch-hitting in the NL division series.

In a quick vote Thursday, Major League Baseball owners approved the sale of the Padres to a group that includes Kevin and Brian O'Malley , sons of former Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley . Commissioner Bud Selig announced the endorsement after the end of the owners meetings in Denver. Under the deal, the group will buy the franchise from owner John Moores for about $800 million. The sale will close by Aug. 31. Ron Fowler , a businessman in San Diego, will become the executive chairman.
