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
