Dodger Stadium wasn't the only one celebrating a birthday Tuesday.

On the day the venerable ballpark turned 50, Andre Ethier was serenaded by fans in the all-you-can-eat right-field pavilion, who tilted back their beer cups in recognition of his 30th birthday.

Ethier made this a birthday and home opener to remember, launching an eighth-inning solo home run that was the difference in the Dodgers' 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"I guess if I can kiss my 20s goodbye, this is the way to do it," he said.
