Andre Ethier, First Dodger With Six Straight 30-Double Seasons

Andre Ethier is one of five Dodgers in history with six seasons of 30 doubles or more, and the only one to do it six years in a row.

Andre Ethier doubled to right field in the sixth inning against Matt Cain of the Giants on Wednesday night, his 30th double of the season. Ethier becomes the first Dodger ever in franchise history to hit at least 30 doubles six years in a row.

In his career against Cain, Ethier is hitting .472 (25-for-53).

Ethier also tied a franchise record, becoming the fifth Dodger ever to even have six seasons of 30 doubles.
