San Francisco, CA.--
Hector Sanchez prepares himself for any situation, just in case he's needed. Not even he could have foreseen what waited for him in the bottom of the 11th inning on Sunday.

Sanchez was asked to pinch-hit against the sidearming Tim Dillard with the bases loaded and the infield drawn in, which included an extra player, as Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was brought in from the outfield.

Sanchez came through anyway, as he singled home pinch-runner Emmanuel Burriss to give the Giants a 4-3 walk-off victory over the Brewers at AT&T Park.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Executing perfectly a move he had saved for the right occasion, Brad Keselowski pulled away from Kyle Busch on the final lap to win the Aaron's 499 on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway in a green-white-checkered-flag finish.

Busch had pushed Keselowski to the lead on Lap 193 of 194 in a race that went six laps past its scheduled distance at the 2.66-mile track. The two cars ran bumper-to-bumper until Turn 3 of the final lap, when Keselowski entered the corner high and dived to the bottom of the track, separating his No. 2 Dodge from Busch's No. 18 Toyota.

After he ditched his dancing partner, Keselowski pulled away to win by 0.304 second, a relative whipping at a track where wins typically are measured in thousandths of a second.

The victory was Keselowski's second of the season, his second at the track and the sixth of his Cup career. It was the first win for Dodge at Talladega since Dave Marcis took the checkered flag 36 years ago.

Matt Kenseth, who led the field to the final restart on Lap 193, was third, followed by Kasey Kahne and points leader Greg Biffle. Clint Bowyer, David Ragan, Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Burton completed the top 10.
