Andre Ethier & the birthday hitting streak

USA TODAY Sports

After starting his career 0-for-7 on his birthday, Andre Ethier is hitting .444 (4-for-9) on his last three games on Apr. 10.

Andre Ethier carries a three-game birthday hitting streak into Wednesday night's game against the Padres in Petco Park. Ethier, who turned 31 on Wednesday, is a lifetime .250 (4-for-16) hitter on Apr. 10, though all four hits have come in the last three years.

Ethier homered in 2012 on his 30th birthday, one of two hits on what was also the 50th anniversary of Dodger Stadium. "If I could kiss my twenties goodbye this is the way to do it," Ethier said after that game.

Ethier has a hit in all six games this season, and dating back to 2012 has a nine-game hitting streak, hitting .355/.412/.677 (11-for-34) during that span.

A.J. Ellis had a birthday Tuesday, but went 0-for-4.
