MIAMI (AP) — Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 24 games in the fourth inning, then homered in the 10th Wednesday to help the Los Angeles Dodgers salvage the final game of their three-game series against Florida, 5-4.

Ethier led off the 10th and homered on a 1-1 pitch from Brian Sanches (3-1), ending the right-hander’s streak of 13 2-3 scoreless innings to start the season. Sanches, the Marlins’ eighth pitcher, had allowed only one hit previously this year.

Ethier’s single in the fourth extended his major league record for the longest April hitting streak. His batting average rose to .380.

Rod Barajas hit a three-run homer for the Dodgers, who came back from a 4-0 deficit.
