LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andre Ethier had a pair of doubles among his season-high four hits, Dee Gordon hit a rare home run and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 7-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-2) allowed one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. The left-hander took a three-hit shutout into the seventh before Miguel Olivo homered. Ethier's four-hit game was first since last Aug. 24-25, when he had back-to-back four-hit efforts against the Marlins at Dodger Stadium -- each of which included a home run. The two-time All-Star is batting .403 against the Marlins in during his eight-year career. Kevin Slowey (1-3) gave up five runs, 11 hits and three walks in 4 2-3 innings. Slowey, who pitched seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball against Philadelphia last weekend, hasn't won consecutive starts since Sept. 12-18, 2010 with Minnesota. Ethier led off the Dodgers' second with a double, ending a drought of 30 at-bats between extra-base hits. He advanced on A.J. Ellis' first sacrifice bunt of the season and scored the game's first run on a broken-bat bloop single by Skip Schumaker. Gordon led off the third with a drive that just cleared the fence in right-center. It was his second homer in the big leagues and first since May 1, 2012. Schumaker, starting at second base for the sixth time in 13 games while Mark Ellis has been sidelined with a right quad strain, turned in the defensive play of the game in the fifth -- robbing Matt Diaz of hit with a diving stop in the hole and throwing him out with runners at first and second to end a Marlins threat. In the bottom half, Schumaker singled home a run and Juan Uribe hit a sacrifice fly to extend the Dodgers' lead to 5-0. The Dodgers tacked on two more runs in the seventh against A.J. Ramos with Uribe's RBI single and a passed ball by Olivo that let Ethier score. NOTES: RF Ethier, a 2011 Gold Glove winner, robbed Diaz of extra bases in the eighth with a diving catch in the alley.
