LOS ANGELES - (AP) Manny Ramirez hit his first two home runs of the season -- and dropped a flyball for his first error -- and Andre Ethier also homered twice as the Los Angeles Dodgers extended their winning streak to seven games with a 9-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

Ethier drove in four runs while batting second for the first time this season in a shuffled lineup that enabled manager Joe Torre to give shortstop Rafael Furcal, third baseman Casey Blake and catcher Russell Martin the day off after Friday night's come-from-behind win.

Chad Billingsley (3-0) allowed three runs and four hits over six innings with six strikeouts and three walks.
