The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES (AP) Pinch-hitter Andre Ethier had a tying two-run single in the seventh inning, rookie Joc Pederson drove in the go-ahead run moments later with a double, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 Friday night.
Jimmy Nelson (6-9) took a 2-0 lead and a two-hitter into the seventh inning before the Dodgers went with three unearned runs. Hernan Perez, who replaced Aramis Ramirez at third at the start of the inning, booted a two-out grounder by Alex Guerrero, and Jimmy Rollins singled to put runners at the corners.
Rollins stole second, and Ethier followed with his single to center while batting for reliever Chin-hui Tsao (1-0). Pederson followed with an opposite-field drive into the left field corner to bring home Ethier.
Tsao earned his first victory as a Dodger with a scoreless seventh. J.P. Howell pitched the eighth and Kenley Jansen got three outs for his 15th save in 16 attempts.
