Ethier had grounded into a double play in his first at-bat, in the first inning.
With the signle past Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney into right, Ethier tied Zack Wheat for the second-longest hitting streak in Dodgers history. Wheat hit in 29 games in 1916. The team record is 31, set by Willie Davis in 1969.
Ethier will go for 30 tomorrow in a day game against Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano. Ethier is hitting .444/.500/.500 in his career against Zambrano, with eight hits in 18 at-bats, with one double and two walks.
