Ethier's streak hits 30

NEW YORK -- Yes, 56 is still a long way off.

But Andre Ethier's hitting streak is now at 30.

Ethier lined a single to center field off Jonathan Niese in the first inning of the Dodgers' Friday night game against the Mets, giving him the second-longest streak in Dodger history. He can tie Willie Davis's club record of 31 Saturday night.

Thirty-game hitting streaks aren't all that uncommon. Ethier's is the sixth streak that long just since the start of the 2005 season.

Three of those streaks ended at 30. Only Jimmy Rollins (36 in 2005) and Chase Utley (35 in 2006) went longer.

Ethier played Friday, after missing the Dodgers' Wednesday game against the Cubs because of a sore right elbow. He said Friday afternoon that he felt healthy enough to play in the first game of a series against the Mets, and manager Don Mattingly wrote Ethier into his usual third spot in the Dodger lineup.

Asked if his elbow felt better, Ethier said, "Somewhat. It's not to the point where it would keep me out of the lineup. Not at this point."

Mattingly said he thinks Ethier's elbow shouldn't be an issue for more than a few days.

"The other day was just, for me, too dangerous," Mattingly said. "He couldn't take a full swing. The last thing we need is to lose this guy for a long time."
