Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 30 games last night with a 3-for-5 performance against the New York Mets. His 30-game hitting streak is the longest since Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman had a 30-game hitting streak in 2009.

Now things are getting interesting. Any hitting streak past 30 becomes fun to follow. We’ll follow Ethier’s streak on a day-by-day basis from here on out.

Next pitcher up for Ethier will be Chris Young. Ethier is 12-for-29 lifetime versus Young with six HRs and two doubles. He also has walked five times against the former Princeton basketball player.
