NEW YORK (AP) — As the days wore on, Josh Wall started hoping that he'd at least get one opportunity to pitch before he was sent back to the minors.
Well, he got the call all right. In the 11th inning.
Wall earned the win in his major league debut, pitching a scoreless inning Sunday.
Pinch-hitter Matt Treanor hit a two-run single in the 12th inning that lifted the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-3 victory over the stumbling New York Mets for a three-game sweep.
"It was pretty cool, pretty amazing experience," said Wall, who was given the game ball by home plate umpire Jim Joyce.
Wall (1-0) gave up a one-out single to David Wright, who was caught trying to steal second. Ike Davis then hit a fly to right field for what might have been Wall's last batter for this stint with the Dodgers.
Called up on July 14 when Javy Guerra was placed on the bereavement list, Wall could be optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday when Chad Billingsley is activated from the disabled list to start against St. Louis.
"I was a little nervous, but being here the week or so that I've been here and getting up once or twice and not getting in the game helped," Wall said. "It felt like it's been feeling all year, kind of the same situation it's been down in Albuquerque and I tried to make my mind believe that's exactly what the situation was and it felt good."
The Dodgers blew a 3-1 lead after the sixth but still won their fourth straight after losing seven of eight and dropping out of first place in the NL West.
An overworked Mets bullpen held the Dodgers to one hit for four innings until Los Angeles broke it open in the 12th with contributions from several late-inning replacements. New York has lost nine of 10 to fall under .500 (47-48) for the first time this season.
On Sunday, the Mets had their chances but went 4 for 19 with runners in scoring position. They were 8 for 39 (.205) in that situation this series.
"I don't think we're playing as poorly as the record indicates," Wright said, "but this is when we need to get things turned around and moving in the direction we need it to."
Help may be on its way. After the game, the Mets said top prospect Matt Harvey will be called up to make his first big league start Thursday. New York had been reluctant to rush the 2010 first-round draft pick to the majors.
James Loney led off the 12th off with a single against Ramon Ramirez (2-2). A defensive replacement in the eighth, Tony Gwynn Jr. bunted for a base hit, just beating the throw to first. New York manager Terry Collins argued to no avail.
Mark Ellis popped up a bunt for the first out and Matt Kemp grounded into a fielder's choice that put runners on first and third. Andre Ethier, who drove in the Dodgers' third run, was intentionally walked to load the bases.
