Dodgers Take Series with 8-2 Win Over M's

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Andre Ethier awakened from a recent slump with his fourth career grand slam to cap a six-run second inning and Chad Billingsley pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Seattle Mariners 8-2 on Sunday.

Shut down by six pitchers in Seattle's third no-hitter Friday night, the Dodgers rebounded to win the final two games of the interleague series.

Billingsley (4-4) won his second straight decision, giving up two hits and a solo homer to Kyle Seager in seven strong innings. The right-hander struck out eight and walked three, the third time in four starts that he has struck out eight.

He got all the offense he needed on one swing from Ethier, who had just one hit in his previous 27 at-bats before smacking a 3-2 fastball from starter Blake Beavan (3-6) into the right-field seats with two outs in the second.
