After being called out on strikes in the first and grounding out in the third inning against Cubs left-hander James Russell, Either stuck his bat out with two strikes for a little looper to short, which bounced off Starlin Castro's glove, scoring Jerry Sands from third.
It was clearly a hit, although with Castro's arm, a good play would have made it interesting. It was Ethier's only hit of the night, finishing 1 for 4, dropping his average to .374.
On the call, Vin Scully noted it's the fourth time Ethier has extended his streak on an infield single.
With it, he broke a tie for third for longest streak in Dodgers history with Duke Snider and Ducky Medwick. Zack Wheat hit in 29 straight games in 1916 for the Brooklyn Dodgers, while Willie Davis holds the franchise record with 31 games.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
