Cubs 5, Brewers 2 (7/30/15)

OSS: Rizzo hit a home run into Lake Michigan, basically. Three up 1. Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson shut down the Cubs for the first seven innings on only two hits, but the Cubs jumped all over his relief, capped off by a Rizzo three-run blast off Will Smith. That has to have been one of the fastest line drive homers I’ve ever seen. I’m amazed we couldn’t see a bow shock form...

Nelson victorious again as Brewers win seventh straight

CINCINNATI -- Jimmy Nelson was the beneficiary and victim of Milwaukee's six-run fifth inning  Saturday night. Nelson lasted less than two innings after the Brewers' lengthy offensive eruption, but he still won his career-best third consecutive start and Milwaukee posted a seventh straight victory, 7-3 over the Cincinnati Reds. "It's always good when (innings are) long, because...

The Brewers starting rotation, plagued by injuries and a general lack of effective stuff, needed both someone who could take the team deep...

The Usefulness of Pitcher Jimmy Nelson

As Tommy John surgery spreads across baseball like the bubonic plague, perhaps it would be worthwhile to re-name the Cy Young award after the famed sports surgeon James Andrews. Fortunately, Milwaukee has avoided this mighty scourge of arm injuries. The Brewers managed to get to Memorial Day weekend with their rotation completely intact. Unfortunately, such luck came to an end Sunday...

Brewers top pitching prospect Nelson dominating in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jimmy Nelson doesn't mind the label of top pitching prospect for the Milwaukee Brewers, but he does get some grief about it from his Nashville Sounds teammates.
 "It's just stuff you try not to concentrate on," said Nelson, the Brewers' 2010 second-round draft pick. "Of course, you get worn out a little bit about it from the (teammates) in here, but it's...
