6/19:Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson threw a complete game one-run ballgame Sunday versus San Diego. Even better for fantasy owners, the one run given up was unearned to go with the 10 strikeouts. He is 5-3 with an ERA of 3.28 and is a strong asset in most leagues. His next scheduled matchup comes against an Atlanta club who is below-average offensively.--Jamie Mellor - RotoBaller

  • @Haudricourt: Jimmy Nelson’s CG on Sunday snapped 305 game drought for #Brewers, 4th longest in MLB history. They also have 2nd longest (407 in ’11-13).
  • @AdamMcCalvy: "This is a guy picking everybody up." More on @Jimmy_J_Nelson's Father's Day gem:
  • @Haudricourt: Jimmy Nelson gave #Brewers something they haven’t had in some time — a complete game. Here is @Todd_Rosiak story:
  • @Haudricourt: RT @jeff_maillet: Jimmy Nelson digs deep, gives #Brewers bullpen a breather
  • @AdamMcCalvy: In context, an even bigger performance from Jimmy Nelson. Knebel, Hughes, Drake were all down today.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Jimmy Nelson goes the distance for a 2-1 Brewers win. First complete game for the Crew since Jungmann on 7-11-15.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson fans Aybar, then pumps his fist. Brewers’ first complete game in almost two years. Beat the Padres, 2-1, and win the series.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson with a new career high at 116. Two outs now and the crowd on its feet.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Nelson heads out for the ninth at 106 pitches.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Brewers can’t tack onto their lead in the eighth, and Nelson will get a chance to finish this thing out. Big hand for him now.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Nelson navigates a scoreless 8th with a 2-1 lead. After Solarte's would-be homer drifts foul, he grounds into a double play. Big moment.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson gets just what he needs — a 4-6-3 ground-ball DP to get out of the eighth. Another nice turn by Sogard/Arcia.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Fourth time through the order is the bigger factor, IMHO. But Counsell has few good bullpen options at the moment.…
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Craig Stammen throws a 1-2-3 seventh, and Nelson heads out to start the eighth.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Nelson is at 96 pitches and entering fourth time through the order, but batting in the bottom of the seventh. Hader stirring in 'pen.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: With two on and one out, Nelson strikes out Matt Szczur and then gets a nice play from Thames at first to maintain the 2-1 lead.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: A scoreless sixth for Nelson, who’s allowed just four singles to this point.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson reaches on a swinging bunt, Sogard walks and then Thames grounds into a 6-3 DP. Padres take 1-0 lead to the sixth.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Cory Spangenberg leads off the fifth with an infield tapper, and Nelson throws the ball down the RF line.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson tosses his second 1-2-3 inning in the fourth.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson strikes out a pair with Arcia’s great play sandwiched in between in a scoreless third.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nelson strikes out. Brewers go from bases loaded and nobody out to no runs.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Jimmy Nelson plunks Hunter Renfroe to start the second, then with one out walks Erick Aybar.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Sorry, nine hits against Nelson tonight, as pointed out by eagle-eyed @cbriz. “Be accurate,” he says.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Final line on Nelson: 5 2/3 IP, 7 H, 4 R (earned), 2 BB, 4 K, 90 pitches.
