Worth noting

• Despite feeling "much better," shortstop Wilmer Flores was out of the lineup for the second straight game on Monday. Flores was still dealing with the after-effects of a stomach virus that forced him out of Sunday's game, but he was available off the bench if needed.

• Reliever Gonzalez Germen was also battling illness on Monday and was in worse shape than Flores. Manager Terry Collins said he did not expect to have Germen available in the game.
