Daniel Murphy, who was due to bat second and play second base on Wednesday night, has been scratched from the lineup.

Terry Collins said Murphy was suffering from lower-back stiffness.

Ronny Cedeno enters the lineup in place of Murphy.

"It's nothing I think is going to take very long," Murphy said. "I just kind of woke up sore -- lower-back soreness. It's just a reminder that 140 games is a lot of baseball."
