Andre Ethier leads the league in batting average, home runs (tie) and RBI — all reasons that the Dodgers are hoping his broken finger isn't serious. Ethier broke the pinkie on his right hand while hitting in a cage before Saturday's game in San Diego. He has been examined by two doctors, but a decision whether to sideline him for two weeks on the disabled list is still pending. The Dodgers won Sunday without Ethier, 1-0.
Noted: Early starts meant that Sunday's Los Angeles Times had the results of both Saturday night games: Dodgers and Angels.
Sad anniversary: Tom Hoffarth on the day in 1970 when a foul ball into the stands struck and eventually killed Alan Fish, who was 14.
