Brewers 2, Indians 6: I thought Hank was the one going for walks

Jimmy Nelson continued a string of bad starting pitching performances for the Brewers, walking eight batters in 3.1 innings.

Win: Manship (1-0)
Loss: Nelson (10-10)

HR: Davis (17), Kipnis (7)


Safe to say, starting pitching has not been a bright spot of late for the Brewers. Jimmy Nelson has been having a nice sophomore year for Milwaukee, but he was bad against the Indians on Wednesday.

Nelson just couldn't find any semblance of control, walking a whopping eight Cleveland batters while also giving up four hits on the way to allowing five earned runs over 3.1 innings. Nelson walked more batters than he got out. Nelson had been really good since the start of July (2.15 ERA, .616 opponent OPS, 54 K in 58 IP), but he had absolutely nothing on Wednesday.

The Brewers offense also failed to keep them in the game, picking up just seven hits while scoring two runs. Khris Davis hit another home run, a solo shot in the 2nd inning, but also had a fielding error. Elian Herrera was the only Brewer with multiple hits.

Domingo Santana watch: 0-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. Mmmmmm 3TO.

The Brewers are off on Thursday before heading back to Miller Park for a series with the Reds.
