SAN DIEGO, April 7 (UPI) -- Chad Billingsley pitched into the ninth inning Friday, allowing just three hits and striking out 11 while carrying the Los Angeles Dodgers past San Diego 6-0.

Billingsley was removed in the ninth after giving up a one-out single. Jamey Wright needed only four pitches to retire the final two batters.
Billingsley walked only one while throwing 108 pitches.
Ethier doubled home two runs in the first and tripled in two more in the fifth to give the Dodgers a 6-0 lead.
Cory Luebke suffered the loss, allowing five runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings.
