San Diego (AP) - Orlando Arcia singled in Ji-Man Choi with two outs in the 12th inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the San Diego Padres 2-1 on opening day Thursday.
Arcia's hit came off sidearmer Adam Cimber (0-1), who was making his big league debut. After getting Manny Pina to hit into a double play, Cimber allowed Choi's pinch-hit double before Arcia's go-ahead RBI.
Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) pitched two innings for the win. Jacob Barnes struck out the side in the 12th for the save.
The Padres had the bases loaded with one out in the 11th, with newcomer Eric Hosmer poised to score the winning run, but Chase Headley, back with San Diego after 3 1/2 seasons with the New York Yankees, grounded into a double play.
The Brewers were one out away from winning 1-0 on a four-hitter when Freddy Galvis, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia, singled to right off Corey Knebel, a first-time All-Star last year, to bring in Carlos Asuaje and send it into extra innings. Asuaje singled with one out and stole second with two outs.
Milwaukee's Chase Anderson allowed one hit in six innings in his first opening day start. He had six strikeouts and three walks.
