Milwaukee Brewers ace Jimmy Nelson suffers season-ending injury

Jimmy Nelson

Although Zach Davies has more victories and Chase Anderson has a lower earned-run average, Nelson has established himself as the Brewers' unquestioned ace. Anthony Rizzo hit a ball in the fifth that would normally have been a three-run shot, but the wind knocked it down and killed a potential go-ahead home run.

Thirteen of the Cubs' final 21 games are against the Brewers and Cardinals. The Brewers remian 3 back in the wild card race.

Instead of going with rookie Brandon Woodruff on the hill, the Brewers made a decision to give Matt Garza another shot and it backfired. Nelson will finish the season with a career-high 12 wins and a career-best 3.49 ERA, while compiling 199 strikeouts over 175 1/3 innings.

Padres 8, Diamondbacks 7 • Carlos Asuaje hit a tying single and an error by left fielder David Peralta allowed the go-ahead run to score as San Diego overcame a five-run deficit in the ninth inning on the road. 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. They managed just four hits on the day.

The win, coupled with Friday's 2-0 victory, cut the Brewers' deficit to three games in the NL Central with Sunday's series finale and a four-game set in Milwaukee on September 21-24 to go.

The frustrating part is they won series against the Dodgers and Nationals, a pair of first place teams.

"My biggest thing was to get the guys back in the dugout, get them swinging the bats", Anderson said. Nelson's six games with double-digit strikeouts this season (had 11 in his last start last Friday versus Washington) are the most by a Brewer in a season since Gallardo in 2010 (seven).
