MILWAUKEE (AP) - Carlos Gomez raced home following two throwing errors after he stole second base in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Gomez entered the game as a pinch-runner for Aramis Ramirez, who led off by drawing a five-pitch walk from Diamondbacks reliever Patrick Corbin (2-4). After Corey Hart flew out, Gomez stole second, jumped to his feet as the throw from catcher Miguel Montero ended up in center field. Outfielder Gerardo Parra picked up the ball but threw wildly to third, allowing Gomez to score the winning run.
John Axford (2-5) pitched a scoreless ninth inning.
