Andre Ethier Leaves Game With Left Oblique Injury

When it rains it pours.

The Dodgers road trip from hell got even worse on its final day, as Andre Ethier left Wednesday's game in the first inning with a left oblique injury. Ethier walked on the first inning, then was erased on a double play by Juan Rivera. It is unclear just how or when Ethier injured the oblique, but he was removed from the game in the middle of the first after talking with trainer Sue Falsone.

Elian Herrera replaced Ethier in right field.

We don't really know the extent of the injury, but oblique injuries are never good so don't be surprised if Ethier has to join Matt Kemp on the disabled list. My guess would be that Alex Castellanos would be recalled to replace Ethier, but I'm sure we'll know more tomorrow.

All that is missing on this road trip as the new Pedro Guerrero breaking his leg sliding into third base and Jim Campanis going on Nightline.

The Dodgers trail the Giants 2-0 in the fourth inning, and have been held scoreless for 25 straight innings, dating back to Sunday. They have lost seven of the first eight games on the trip.
