Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson goes eight innings in win on Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson allowed one run on three hits in eight innings of work in Milwaukee's 8-1 win over the Tigers on Tuesday.
Nelson's lone run allowed came in the first inning when after Ian Kinsler walked, he advanced all the way to third after a stolen base and a throwing error. Kinsler then scored on a J.D. Martinez RBI single. Walker settled down after that, striking out five in his eight innings.
Nelson, now 2-4, lowered his ERA to 3.73 in 50 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Sunday against the Braves.

Brewers P Jimmy Nelson surrenders three home runs Friday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) The long ball was not kind to Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson during Friday's 7-6 loss to the Cubs.
Nelson allowed three home runs and five hits, which resulted in four runs over seven innings of work. Nelson surrendered solo home runs to Dexter Fowler in the first inning as well as to Anthony Rizzo and Jorge Soler in the fourth inning.
Nelson's main highlight during the outing were his 11 strikeouts with only one walk. He received his third loss of the season for his effort. Nelson (1-3) has not received a win since his first start of season.
His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the White Sox.
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson posts quality start in no-decision Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson didn't factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 5-3 win over the Cubs.
Nelson had a 3-1 lead after four innings but gave up two runs in the fifth, giving up a run-scoring triple with two outs and following it up by giving up a double to the next batter to tie the game. He pitched into the seventh but wasn't able to complete the inning, and his offense retook the lead in the eighth.
"I was just doing my best to try to get back to the way I was my first three starts," Nelson said to MLB.com. "It's not going to be easy every time out. It was a struggle today. It was a battle."
Nelson owns a 4.03 ERA and 24:11 K:BB ratio 29 innings. He's slated to face the Cubs again Saturday, this time at home.
Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson tagged for seven runs in loss
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson allowed seven runs, six earned, on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings of work Monday in Milwaukee's 9-6 loss to the Reds.
Nelson was ripped early and often, starting in the second inning when Jay Bruce ripped a 1-2 pitch over the right field wall for a two-run shot. Then, with two on, pitcher Jason Marquis singled to left center to score a run. After Billy Hamilton reached safely, Nelson walked in a run with the bases loaded before getting out of the second.
Then in the third, Nelson allowed a run on a wild pitch before Marlon Byrd singled to center to bring home another. After another single, Nelson's night was finished.
Nelson, now 1-2, ballooned his ERA to 3.63. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Cubs.
|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.
