Jones scratched from second game's lineup

POSTED: August 17, 2008 5:01 a.m.

ATLANTA — Braves slugger Chipper Jones was scratched from Wednesday night's second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs with a stomach virus.

Martin Prado moved into the lineup for Jones at third base.

Jones was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Friday after missing 14 games with a left hamstring injury, but said before Wednesday's first game his legs are still not healthy.

"My hamstring's great. My quad is still pretty sore," Jones said.

Jones missed eight straight starts with a strained right quadriceps in late June and has been bothered by the injury at other times this season.

Jones leads the majors with a .370 batting average. He has 19 homers and 58 RBIs.
