Ethier runs hit streak to 28 games
Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 28 games Monday in
the Dodgers’ 5-2 win over the Cubs, putting him halfway toward the
record 56-game streak Joe DiMaggio had in 1941.
Ethier hit an RBI single in the hole that shortstop Starlin
Castro couldn’t make a play on with two out in the fifth inning
against Chicago Cubs left-hander James Russell, his fourth career
at-bat against the rookie.
The streak is the longest by a Dodgers player since Willie Davis
set a franchise record with a 31-game streak in 1969. Davis batted
.435 during that stretch (54 for 124) with one homer and 23
