What We Learned: Jimmy Nelson is not walking on sunshine

Jimmy Nelson struggled in a start last night as he had one of the highest walk totals in a game in Brewers history. We discuss that and more in today's What We Learned.

Indians 6, Brewers 2

The Brewers pitchers are glad to get out of Cleveland after allowing seventeen runs in two games. Last night, it was Jimmy Nelson taking his lumps for the Brewers. He allowed five runs in 3.1 innings, allowing four hits and walking a total of eight batters (the first Brewers pitcher to do that since 2006). Khris Davis hit a solo home run to continue his hot month, and Logan Schafer drove in the other run on a sacrifice fly. Elian Herrera had two hits in the game, the only Brewer to have more than one.
