If not for Sanchez, Ethier would be at 31

Andre Ethier is a long way from tying Joe DiMaggio. He's not far from tying Willie Davis.

If not for Jonathan Sanchez, he already would have.

Sanchez was the Giants' starting pitcher on April 1, the only time this year that Ethier was held without a hit. He had a hit the day before, and he's hit in all 29 games he's played since.

Sanchez is why 29 isn't already 31, which would tie Davis's Dodgers franchise record.

"He just doesn't see me that well," Sanchez said. "Lefty on lefty. I get him out. I'm not sure why."

Ethier has just four hits -- and 11 strikeouts -- in 30 career at-bats against the Giants' left-hander. He's 0-for-6 with three strikeouts against Sanchez this year, going 0-for-3 on April 1 and also on April 13 in San Francisco.

In the April 1 game, Ethier went 0-for-3 against Sanchez, then grounded out in his final at-bat against reliever Dan Runzler. On April 13, after his 0-for-3 against Sanchez, Ethier singled against Javier Lopez to extend his streak to 10 games.

Sanchez isn't the only opposing starter to hold Ethier hitless this year, but he is the only one to do it twice.

Ethier also went 0-for-3 against Chris Carpenter (in Game 14 of the streak) and Tim Hudson (in Game 15), and went 0-for-2 against Barry Zito (in Game 2) and Ryan Dempster (in Game 20). Ethier also went 0-for-1 against Clayton Richard, who left after one inning because of a long rain delay.

The Dodgers face the Giants April 18-19 in Los Angeles. Good news for Ethier: Assuming the Giants stay with their current rotation, Sanchez (who is pitching against the Mets Thursday afternoon) would not pitch in that two-game series.
