LOS ANGELES -- Andre Ethier doubled down the right field line in the eighth inning Wednesday night, climbing yet another chart in Dodgers history. He tied Bill Russell for 10th all-time in Dodgers history with 293 career doubles.
With 48 games remaining, there is still room for Ethier to move even further up the doubles list. Gil Hodges is ninth with 294 doubles, Eric Karros is eighth with 302, and Jim Gilliam seventh at 304.
Ethier and Russell are tied for fourth in Los Angeles Dodgers history, 40 behind Steve Garvey for the lead.
Ethier has 12 doubles on the season, needing eight more for his ninth season of 20 or more doubles, something done by nine other Dodgers, the nine ahead of him on the franchise doubles list. Ethier is already the only Dodgers player ever with seven seasons of at least 30 doubles.
Ethier is also climbing the charts in other categories as well. He's at...
- 1,376 games played, six behind Jackie Robinson for 14th place in Dodgers history
- 5,254 plate appearances, 54 behind Davey Lopes for 15th, 118 behind Jimmy Johnston for 14th
- 625 runs scored, two behind Roy Campanella for 22nd
- 157 home runs, five behind Shawn Green for 12th and six behind Raul Mondesi for 11th
- 505 walks, nine behind Carl Furillo for 18th, 12 behind Eric Karros for 17th, 17 behind Ron Fairly for 16th
Ethier also tripled on Tuesday, his fifth of the season, one year after hitting six. His 32 career triples are one shy of Matt Kemp for 10th all-time in Los Angeles Dodgers history.
