Reporting from Chicago
Ethier also singled to left in the ninth inning of the Dodgers' 7-3 victory.
Ethier said cleanup hitter Matt Kemp deserved some of the credit for his recent form.
"He's a good person to have behind you in any lineup," Ethier said. "It provides me with opportunities to swing the bat."
Kemp is batting .402.
Only one player has hit in more consecutive games in April: former Dodgers manager Joe Torre.
Torre hit in 22 consecutive games in April of 1972 when he played for the St. Louis Cardinals.
The last Dodger to hit in 21 consecutive games or more was Nomar Garciaparra, who had a 22-game hitting streak in 2006.
The longest hitting streak in Dodgers history is 31 games by Willie Davis in 1969.
Big day for little man
Utility infielder Aaron Miles reached base four times, as he was three for five with a triple. He also was the beneficiary of a throwing error by second baseman Darwin Barney.
Miles started at second in place of injured Juan Uribe. He batted leadoff.
"I finally got some to fall in," Miles said. "Raised my average a little, not hover around that Mendoza line."
Miles began the game batting .214. He raised his average to .255.
Miles spent a frustrating season with the Cubs in 2009, when he was limited to 74 games because of a couple of shoulder injuries.
"I didn't get too many boos out there," he said. "There are still some leftover boos from when I was here."
Among the last players to leave the dugout after the Dodgers' come-from-ahead defeat Saturday was Blake Hawksworth, who inherited two runners in the eighth inning and allowed them to both score on a double by Jeff Baker.
"I don't like losing," Hawksworth said. "I don't like giving up other people's runs."
Hawksworth returned Sunday and pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
"I wanted to get him back out there," Manager Don Mattingly said.
Mattingly said he was pleased to see Hawksworth pitch aggressively.
Hawksworth said he was grateful for the opportunity to return to the mound.
"That's what all of us as relievers want," he said. "You don't want to sit on it. It allows more time for thoughts, clutter to get in your head."
Uribe sat out his second consecutive game because of a tight thigh muscle. He remains day-to-day. … Backup catcher Dioner Navarro, who has been on a rehabilitation assignment with double-A Chattanooga, could be activated Monday. ... Kemp, who was two for five with a double, has hit safely in his last five games. … Casey Blake was 0 for 2 but reached base three times — twice on walks and once when he was hit by a pitch. Blake is nine for 20 in his last five games.
