Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson's win streak comes to end
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/26/15) Jimmy Nelson came into Wednesday's start having won four straight decisions for the Brewers, but his streak came to an end in a loss to the Indians.
Nelson was all over the place, walking eight batters in 3 1/3 innings of work, while allowing four hits and five runs. The final result was his first loss since July 10.
Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson earns 10th win on Friday vs. Nationals
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/21/15) Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson took advantage of an offensive outburst by his teammates, as he picked up his 10th win of the season in the 10-3 victory over the Nationals on Friday. Nelson allowed two runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four.
Nelson (10-9, 3.60 ERA) allowed a run in the second to put the Brewers down 1-0. But they rallied back and took a 5-1 lead into the sixth. Nelson surrendered a solo home run to Bryce Harper, but that would be all the damage against him. Meanwhile, the Brewers would continue to tack on, en route to the blowout victory.
Nelson is 3-0 with a 1.82 ERA over his last six starts.

Jimmy Nelson takes no-decision for Brewers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson receives win in Tuesday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/4/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson picked up his ninth win of the season during Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Padres.
Nelson allowed one unearned run on three hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. He also struck out four and walked one. He is now 9-9 with a 3.57 ERA.
Nelson has received a win in three of his last four starts and earned a quality start in his last five outings.
|2014 summary: Jimmy Nelson did in 2014 what many of the highest-profile pitching prospects have failed to do over the years: He dominated the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League, thriving with a rare combination of strikeouts and groundouts. He wasn't as effective in a 12-start trial in the majors, but at 6-feet-6, 245 pounds, he profiles as a workhorse for the Brewers eventually.|
Playing time status: The emergence of Mike Fiers late last year looked like it would make Nelson a spare part this year, but the Brewers cleared the logjam by trading Yovani Gallardo to the Rangers in January and announcing Nelson would be in their starting rotation the same day. Clearly, they believe in him.
2015 outlook: Though Nelson is a legitimate prospect, his performance at Triple-A Nashville last year caught many by surprise, making his upside a subject of speculation. Even with a rotation spot to call his own, he won't for sure be drafted in mixed leagues, but he'll be a popular waiver wire addition if he gets off to a hot start.
