Milwaukee Brewers ace Jimmy Nelson suffers season-ending injury

Brewers' Braun will join exclusive company with next home run | FOX Sports

A's 11-11, Astros 1-4 • Normally reliable Houston reliever Chris Devenski allowed two runs in the seventh inning, including Chad Pinder's tiebreaking homer with two outs, and Houston was swept a doubleheader at Oakland. Had the Cubs not dropped the first two games of their series in Pittsburgh, the division may have been out of reach.

Instead of going with rookie Brandon Woodruff on the hill, the Brewers chose to give Matt Garza another shot and it backfired.

Nelson pitched five scoreless innings against the Cubs to raise his record to 12-6 for the 2017 season, the most pitching victories he's had in one season. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. He's walked 18 and struck out 17 for an ERA of 10.13. As the Brewers have shown all year though, baseball isn't always driven by talent.

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.

The Chicago Cubs will look to salvage a win and avoid the sweep when they take the field on Sunday.

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

Nelson hurt his shoulder on the bases Friday night against the Cubs, diving back into first in the top of the fifth after hitting a ball off the wall and thinking better of trying to stretch it into a double. Jimmy Nelson (11-6, 3.59) pitches for the Brewers and Chicago will go with John lackey (11-10, 4.74).
