LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andre Ethier hit a grand slam in the ninth off LaTroy Hawkins after the Dodgers blew a two-run lead in the top of the inning, and Los Angeles beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-3 Thursday night.
Jonathan Broxton (2-0) took the mound in the ninth trying to protect a 3-1 lead for John Ely, who was in line for his first big league victory. But the Brewers got four hits off the Dodgers' closer and tied it on two-out RBI singles by Gregg Zaun and Corey Hart.
Ethier worked the count to 2-2 before driving the next pitch to center field for his 10th homer. It was his second game-ending hit of the season and 11th since the start of the 2008 season.
Ethier has had two at-bats this season with the bases loaded, both of them grand slams.
