Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson out for rest of 2017

Jimmy Nelson

Orlando Arcia went a flawless 3 for 3 with a double and three RBIs, while Travis Shaw went 1 for 2 with a double of his own and two RBIs. Nelson was removed after five innings with shoulder soreness, but the Cubs mustered just a walk off the Brewers bullpen. Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia each hit a two-run double, Ryan Braun scored on a balk by Grimm, and Perez had a sacrifice fly. Fortunately for the Brewers, they still have plenty to play for between the wild card and the division, despite their laying down in Cincinnati.

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

Garza is in the final year of a four-year deal that paid him $50 million. Mike Montgomery took the loss to fall to 5-8 this season after allowing four runs on two hits while walking four and striking out a pair over just two innings of work. At times this season, he was productive.

You wouldn't know it from the Brewers' 15-2 victory Saturday at Wrigley Field, but Nelson's freak injury was a huge blow to the team even as it pulled to within three games of the Cubs, with a chance for a series sweep Sunday. They were unable to find that big clutch hit though.


"The command wasn't there today", said Montgomery, who was 2-1 with a 2.00 ERA in his three previous starts.

Astoundingly, the Dodgers still have a 10 and a half game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West race, even though Arizona has won 13 games in a row.

In my eyes, the pitching matchup is even, so with that cancelling out, the Brewers have outplayed the Cubs I the first two games of the set and need these wins much more than the Cubs do. "To me, if anything, I'd say they're playing like a team that's trying to get in". And his toughness was on display when he went out and pitched the bottom of the fifth Friday with a "weird" feeling in his arm.
