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).
