Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson out for rest of 2017

Milwaukee Brewers' Travis Shaw celebrates in the dugout with Orlando Arcia after hitting a two-run home run off Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Ariel Hernandez during the eighth inning of a baseball game Tuesday Sept. 5 2017 in Cincinnati

On #Saturday Afternoon, the Milwaukee Brewers visited the defending champion Chicago Cubs.

Thirteen of the Cubs' final 21 games are against the Brewers and Cardinals.

Mets 6, Reds 1 • Rafael Montero overcame five walks to win his third straight start and Kevin Plawecki hit a two-run homer as NY won at home. Had the Cubs not dropped the first two games of their series in Pittsburgh, the division may have been out of reach.

The Cubs have lost 10 times by 13 or more runs since the turn of the century, doing it a staggering four times in 2010 alone.

Milwaukee also produced a run on a balk by reliever Justin Grimm, who surrendered another four runs after Montgomery departed. "We're getting hot at the right time".

"I'm pretty sore now", Nelson said after Saturday's game. "That was probably the biggest positive tonight". Kyle Schwarber hit a pinch-hit solo homer and Leonys Martin added an RBI double of his own, making up the lone two runs in the loss for the Cubs.


Perez made it 11-0 with a two-run drive down the left-field line in the fifth.

Anderson called the eight-run third "huge" before the Brewers provided him with more than enough offensive support en route to the blowout victory. "And we swung the bats really well today".

Win one for the businessman and his day games! Nelson has a strained right rotator cuff strain and partial anterior labrum tear.

Nelson, 28, had been up and down over his first three full seasons in Milwaukee, but had taken a huge step forward this season to arguably become manager Craig Counsell's ace in the rotation.

Encarnacion hit a three-run homer in the first inning into some trees next to Heritage Park, the team's hallowed area where past Cleveland stars and teams are immortalized.
