Andre Ethier hasn't hit a home run in his last 10 games, but that isn't a problem.
Over that span, he has driven in seven runs.
Ethier is taking a less flashy but more consistent approach to compiling numbers.
He drove in two more runs in the Dodgers' 6-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, reclaiming the National League runs batted in lead from Carlos Gonzalez.
The first was on a first-inning single to right field. The second was on a fourth-inning walk with the bases loaded.
He is now batting .327 with nine home runs and 46 RBIs. In a lineup that has been shaken by injuries, Ethier has remained a constant producer.
With age, the low-key approach has been easier to embrace. Ethier turned 30 in April.
"You get a little more comfortable when you get older," he said.
Ethier has driven in runs in 30 of the 52 games he has played. The greatest number of runs he has driven in in a single game is four — and that was in the second game of the season.
