Halfway to Joe: Ethier runs hit streak to 28 games

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Andre Ethier of the Los Angeles Dodgers has extended his hitting streak to 28 games, 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 RBIs.
