Nelson Struggles In Brewers' Loss To Cardinals

Jimmy Nelson gives up six walks as the Milwaukee Brewers lose at home to Saint Louis 6-4 on Sunday. Nelson walked three batters in the fourth inning, when the Cardinals scored three runs to put the game away. Winning pitcher Mike Leake helped his own cause with a two run single in that frame, and he improved to 3-1 by striking out six in six innings while giving up two runs on three hits, the first time all year that Leake gave up more than one run, as he came into the game as the National League’s ERA leader. Nelson surrendered four runs and fanned five in five and one third innings, and he fell to 1-1 on the year and 0-8 lifetime against Saint Louis. Manny Pina hit the game’s only homer for Milwaukee, which has now lost five of its last six games and will host Cincinnati tonight.
