Cubs' Blowout Loss to Brewers One of Worst in Rivalry's History

Jimmy Nelson will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a partial labrum tear and right rotator cuff strain, the team announced Saturday.

"When we're in chasing position, we have less room for error", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday.

Nelson threw four-hit ball over five innings.

Nelson finishes 2017 with a 12-6 record and a 3.49 ERA.

Nelson actually picked up the victory, and the Brewers' win pulled them within four of the Cubs in the NL Central.

Jimmy Nelson is eight strikeouts shy of becoming the first Brewers pitcher with at least 200 strikeouts in a single season since Yovani Gallardo in 2012 (204).

Hurricane Irma could add to increasing rainfall totals for East TN
Winds of up to 185mph (297kph) have hit Barbuda as Hurricane Irma passed directly over the Caribbean island. It's now located 1,400 miles from Jacksonville and is moving west at 14 mph.


Nelson's start on Friday was his 29 of the season, tying him for the most in the National League, and his career-high 199 strikeouts rank third in the league in 2017. Milwaukee also entered Saturday three games behind Colorado for the second wildcard.

The Brewers were dealt a crappy hand today, but with some imagination they should be able to stay afloat in both of their races for a playoff spot.

Every win is going to count down the stretch, especially as the Brewers attempt to make up ground, and getting the most out of their roster is one way to ensure success.

That's the reality from a talent standpoint.

In Garza's defense, the Brewer hitters didn't show up again. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. They were all over the Cubs, winning 15-2 to chop another game off their deficit.
