LOS ANGELES (AP) Pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal walked with the bases loaded to end the game, and the Los Angeles Dodgers used another strong start from Japanese rookie Kenta Maeda to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Sunday.

Grandal took a 3-2 pitch for from reliever Tyler Thornburg (3-2) that missed high and outside.

Adrian Gonzalez started the rally with a one-out single to center before moving to second on Trayce Thompson's single to right. Howie Kendrick later walked to load the bases.

Kenley Jansen (3-2) pitched a scoreless ninth, and the Dodgers won for the sixth time in seven games.
