Andre Ethier has learned how to control his temper when striking out. What he hasn't learned how to do is ignore the click of a camera. As a result, Ethier had to stand in front of his locker Thursday and explain why pictures of him flipping off credentialed photographers appeared on a sports gossip site earlier in the day. "It was an inspirational piece," he said. "They asked me what I thought of Dylan Hernandez . " He was kidding. Or so we would like to think.

AT ARIZONA Time: 6:40 p.m. Where: Chase Field, Phoenix. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 790, 930. Pitchers: James McDonald vs. Jon Garland. Saturday: Hiroki Kuroda (1-0, 1.59 in 2009) vs. Yusmeiro Petit (3-5, 4.31 in 2008); Sunday: Randy Wolf (0-1, 6.75 in 2009) vs. Dan Haren (0-1, 1.29 in 2009). Update: McDonald, 24, showed rare poise as a September call-up last season, tossing six scoreless innings to earn a spot on the Dodgers' playoff roster. Garland pitched last season for the Angels, who acquired him from the Chicago White Sox. Garland wanted a multi-year deal this off-season, but the slow free-agent market forced him to settle for a one-year, $6.25-million contract from the Diamondbacks.

AT CINCINNATI When: 10 a.m. PDT. Where: Great American Ball Park. On the air: TV: Ch. 9; Radio: 790, 930. Pitchers: Clayton Kershaw vs. Bronson Arroyo. Update: Kershaw is winless over his last seven starts. He has posted a 2.97 earned-run average but has walked 21 batters in that span, resulting in his averaging less than 5 2/3 innings per outing. Kershaw didn't factor in the decision Tuesday in Colorado, as he was pulled after 6 1/3 innings because his pitch count was at 104. Later that inning, Ronald Belisario gave up a home run to Clint Barmes that put the Dodgers behind by a run in the eventual 5-4, 10-inning loss.

Are you ready to ease back in your Dodgers inflatable chair, feet resting on your Dodgers welcome mat, head beneath your Dodgers pennant (which is right next to your Yasiel Puig Fathead), wearing your Dodgers hoodie, listening to Vin Scully on your portable Dodgers speaker (or headphones), all while clutching your Dodgers autograph baseball in one hand and tapping one of your new Dodgers bobbleheads with the other? It's all so possible. You don't need an app to imagine that, the Dodgers will sell you a special mini plan.

The Dodgers dispatched three of their top scouts to Tijuana on Thursday to evaluate what could be their next great Cuban import. As outfielder Yasiel Puig attracts attention in the major leagues, the Dodgers joined other major league clubs at a showcase for Cuban right-hander Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. The 26-year-old right-hander could soon be available to the highest bidder. Bob Engle, the Dodgers' vice president of international scouting, led the Dodgers' contingent to Mexico on Thursday.

Dodgers 4, Arizona 4 AT THE PLATE: Receiving an extra at-bat as a result over confusion over the Dodgers' batting order, Andre Ethier hit his first home run of the spring. Matt Kemp drove in a run on a sixth-inning triple. Catcher A.J. Ellis , who will probably replace the injured Russell Martin on the opening day roster, was two for four. ON THE MOUND: Vicente Padilla gave up four hits and one run over three innings. Ramon Ortiz strengthened his bid to be the fifth starter by limiting the Diamondbacks to one hit over three shutout innings.
