Dodgers rookie pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu allowed three hits in seven innings but, after giving up a run in the sixth inning, left without a decision. He walked three and struck out eight.
With the score 1-1, Nick Punto opened the Los Angeles ninth with a double off Mets reliever Scott Rice (1-1) and took third on a fielder's choice. Rice intentionally walked Matt Kemp but Ethier followed with an RBI single to center, with Punto scoring and Kemp taking third.
Bobby Parnell replaced Rice but Uribe, battling through an eight-pitch at-bat, reached on an infield hit while Kemp made the score 3-2.
That gave Kenny Jansen (1-0), who pitched the eighth, the win. Brandon League got his sixth save despite giving up a home run to Ike Davis in the bottom of the ninth.
