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.
