Brandon Crawford singled off Brandon League (0-1) with one out in the 12th and advanced to second on a groundout by Brandon Hicks. Crawford went to third on a wild pitch and Sanchez hit a sharp one-hopper that glanced off the glove of diving second baseman Justin Turner and into center field.

Yusmeiro Petit (1-1) worked a scoreless inning for the win in a game that took 4 hours, 54 minutes and ended after midnight on the West Coast.

Juan Uribe had three hits, including a home run and a double, and scored twice for the Dodgers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.

Josh Beckett and Tim Lincecum both pitched well for five innings.

CARDINALS 6, BREWERS 1

MILWAUKEE • Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings, and Mark Ellis had two RBIs in his return from the disabled list to lead St. Louis over Milwaukee.

Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta homered in the ninth for the Cardinals, who handed the Brewers their second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak.

Miller (1-2) routinely fired fastballs clocked in the mid-90s (mph) and gave up only a homer to Aramis Ramirez in the fourth. The Brewers have one run and six hits in the first two games of the series.

Marco Estrada (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings.

METS 9, DIAMONDBACKS 0

PHOENIX • Kirk Nieuwenhuis had three hits and three RBIs in his season debut, Jenrry Mejia pitched five effective innings in a combined three-hitter and New York routed the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Mets placed center fielder Juan Lagares on the 15-day disabled list with a pulled hamstring and called up Nieuwenhuis from the minors before the game. He slid into Lagares’ spot nicely, hitting a two-run homer during a six-run fourth inning against Bronson Arroyo (1-1) and adding a diving catch in the fifth.

Mejia (2-0) was sharp before leaving with a torn blister. Eric Young Jr. had three hits and two RBIs, and the Mets finished with 12 hits to ensure a winning record on their nine-game road trip.

The Diamondbacks had another awful night on the mound, losing their seventh straight home game and eighth in nine at Chase Field. Arroyo allowed 10 runs and nine hits in 3 1-3 innings.

ROCKIES 3, PADRES 2

SAN DIEGO • Juan Nicasio pitched six solid innings and Colorado edged San Diego for a rare road victory.

Nicasio (2-0) allowed hits to his first four batters as the light-hitting Padres took a 2-0 lead. But the right-hander gave up just two hits after that and improved to 3-0 in six starts against San Diego with a 2.89 ERA.
