Jones scratched with sore groin

MILWAUKEE -- Chipper Jones has been scratched from the Atlanta Braves' lineup with a sore groin.

The third baseman missed Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies but returned for the series opener at Milwaukee on Monday night. He was 1-for-3 with a walk before being lifted for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning of the Braves' 8-2 victory.

Jones was originally in manager Bobby Cox's lineup for Tuesday night's game but was removed about an hour before first pitch. Brooks Conrad replaced Jones at third.
