About that Don Mattingly/Andre Ethier fight in the dugout Saturday.

Andre Ethier and Don Mattingly were arguing in the Dodgers’ dugout about something in the eighth inning of the Dodgers’ 12-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday. Neither was forthcoming after the game about the incident. Ethier told reporters that the incident was “misinterpreted.”

Mattingly was more forthcoming about the incident Sunday, saying that Ethier didn’t want to come out of the game in the ninth inning. The manager won the argument in that sense.

Sunday, Mattingly said the two apologized to each other, first he to Ethier then Ethier to him.

“We’re good,” Mattingly said. “I think the greatest thing when you have guys like Andre, he can voice his opinion, I can voice mine, and the next day we’re adults.

“At the end of the day, we’re family.”
