Andre Ethier extended his record April hitting streak to 24 games Wednesday with a fourth-inning single off Marlins starter Anibal Sanchez.
Ethier's 24 game hitting streak breaks the 40-year-old record for the longest April hitting streak in Major League history that was held by Joe Torre.
While Andre Ethier's streak is a long way from eclipsing Joe DiMaggio's Major League Baseball record streak of 56 consecutive games in 1941, it still ranks high on the Los Angeles Dodgers list. It is also the longest April hitting streak in the history of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Here is a look back at some of the longest hitting streaks in Los Angeles Dodgers history and some tidbits on the players themselves.
