LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andre Ethier was 4 for 4 with a homer and four RBIs, Hanley Ramirez and Juan Rivera also went deep against Nathan Eovaldi in his return to Dodger Stadium, and Los Angeles went on to beat the Miami Marlins on 11-4 on Friday night.
Rivera started at first base instead of James Loney, who was pulled from manager Don Mattingly’s original lineup after word spread of a proposed blockbuster trade that would send Loney, infielder Ivan De Jesus, outfielder Jerry Sands and pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster to the Boston Red Sox for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, pitcher Josh Beckett, left fielder Carl Crawford and infielder Nick Punto.
Chad Billingsley, trying to win his seventh straight start, departed in the fourth with a 6-3 lead because of tenderness in his elbow.
