Andre Ethier started to hit his way out of his season-worst slump over the last three days in Anaheim, going six for 11 with two runs, two doubles and two walks in the series against the Angels.

Ethier entered the series hitting .171 this month.

"I don't think I'm quite back where I want to be, but, at the same time, it's just going up there and focusing what each individual at-bat calls for you to do," Ethier said.

In particular, he was referring to how teams are pitching him differently with Matt Kemp out of the lineup. Kemp moved to the disabled list for the second time this season on May 31.
