LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pinch-hitter Justin Turner delivered an RBI single in the eighth inning off Adam Wainwright, and the Los Angeles Dodgers edged the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 Thursday night in their first meeting since last year's NL championship series.

Juan Uribe, just off the disabled list after missing 34 games with a right hamstring strain, led off the eighth with a single and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Drew Butera before rookie Miguel Rojas' infield single put runners at the corners.

Turner, batting for reliever Brian Wilson (1-2), came through with his 20th RBI of the season.

Wilson pitched a perfect inning for the win and Kenley Jansen got three outs for his 24th save.

Wainwright (10-4) took the hard-luck loss after holding the Dodgers hitless through five innings.
