LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Kazuhisa Ishii's scheduled start Tuesday for the Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee has been pushed back two days because of a sore hip flexor.

Kevin Brown will start the series opener Tuesday, Hideo Nomo will start Wednesday and Ishii will go Thursday, team spokesman John Olguin said Monday.

Olguin said Ishii has been bothered by soreness the last couple of days. Ishii (6-1) lost for the first time last Wednesday, a 2-0 defeat to the New York Mets. The Dodgers had just two hits in the game.

The Dodgers were off Monday.
