From Eric Stephen at True Blue LA:
Andre Ethier left the game after the bottom of the seventh inning with a split nail on his right big toe, as a result of getting hit by a Lackey pitch on his foot, and is day-to-day. Torre said Ethier would likely sit out tomorrow, along with scheduled days off for Russell Martin and Rafael Furcal.
Straight from the horse's mouth! So Andre may be nails, but his nail is split. And unfortunately, Ethier (2-for-3 tonight) and Martin (2-for-4 with 2 RBIs) happen to be heating up right now. Which is probably why Joe Torre said about tomorrow's starter Chad Billingsley: "Hopefully we can give them some runs to work with."
