LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Andre Ethier was 4-for-4 with four RBI, a three-run home run and three runs scored Friday to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Miami 11-4.
Matt Kemp had two hits, two runs scored and one RBI for LA, which was reported to be in talks with the Red Sox on a trade that would send first-baseman James Loney and a package of other players to Boston in exchange for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, outfielder Carl Crawford, right-hander Josh Beckett and infielder Nick Punto.
Jamey Wright (5-3) got the victory, allowing one run on three hits with two strikeouts and a walk in 1 1/2 innings of relief after Dodgers' starter Chad Billingsley left the game with one out in the top of the fourth with a right-elbow injury.
Billingsley allowed three runs on five hits with two walks and a strikeout over 3 1/3 innings.
Marlins' starter Nathan Eovaldi (4-9) who went to Miami in a trade last month that send Ramirez to the Dodgers, took the loss, allowing six runs on seven hits in three innings.
Jose Reyes had a two-run home run and Bryan Petersen drove in a run for the Marlins.
