Norton scratched from Braves lineup

Outfielder's twisted knee prevents him from starting Thursday

ATLANTA -- Greg Norton was scratched from the Braves' lineup before the start of Thursday night's game against the Marlins with a twisted left knee. He is listed as day-to-day.

Norton, who was playing left field, has recorded hits in six of his past seven games, including a game-winning two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Marlins. He is batting .188 this season and has made eight starts in left.

Josh Anderson, who was recalled from Triple-A Richmond on Friday, started in left field for Norton and batted eighth.

Gregor Blanco batted seventh and played center field.
