A day after hitting a three-run homer in a 6-4 win, Ike Davis has been scratched from Saturday's lineup with potential food poisoning.

Daniel Murphy will move over to first base -- only his second start there this season. Murphy was getting an intense workout with infield coach Tim Teufel at the position during batting practice.

The new lineup:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis, cf
Jordany Valdespin, 2b
David Wright, 3b
Lucas Duda, rf
Daniel Murphy, 1b
Scott Hairston, lf
Omar Quintanilla, ss
Jose Thole, c
Chris Young, rhp
