Rich Hill avoided serious injury, but not a loss, as both benches emptied in the Dodgers’ 7-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The box score is here.
Now that Andre Ethier and Alex Wood are healthy, they’re in the running for playoff roster spots.

Rich Hill was removed after throwing seven perfect innings in the Dodgers’ 5-0 win over the Miami Marlins. The box score is here.
In a crowded, productive outfield, Andre Ethier must figure out a way to contribute now that he’s back.

If you had September 9 in your office’s “when will Andre Ethier
return to the Dodgers” pool, congratulations. You have a gambling problem.
Ethier’s minor league rehabilitation assignment ended Friday with a one-sentence announcement in the team’s game notes: “Ethier is headed to Miami and could be reinstated by the Dodgers as early as tonight.”

The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes were supposed to give Andre Ethier a rehab game.
They almost gave him two.
Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin allowed one run in his only inning Tuesday in a rehab start for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Ravin allowed a double to the first batter he faced, Johnny Sewald. Sewald advanced to third base on a wild pitch and scored on a deep groundout. Later in the inning, Lancster’s Bryan Muniz missed a home run by a few feet before flying out to end the inning.
Ravin got through the inning with one earned run and one strikeout against his ledger. The right-hander is on the 15-day disabled list with right triceps soreness.
