Ethier has hit in 26 straight games
LOS ANGELES (AP)
Andre Ethier has extended his major league record for the longest April hitting streak to 26 games.
The Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star right fielder dumped an opposite-field single into left on the first pitch from San Diego's Tim Stauffer with one out in the fourth inning Saturday night.
The streak is the longest by a Dodgers player since Willie Davis' franchise-record 31-game stretch in 1969. Ethier's hit was his 40th of the season, tying the club record for April — shared by Mike Piazza (1996) and Rafael Furcal (2008).
