MLB: Prospect Nelson pitches Brewers past Marlins

MIAMI — Milwaukee Brewers rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson won his first major league game on Sunday.

His reward: a one-way ticket back to the minors.

“It is what it is,” said Nelson, who knew going in that this would only be a one-start appearance in the majors, filling in for injured right-hander Yovani Gallardo. “Yo’s getting healthy.

“I’m just going to try to work on my consistency and going deeper into games.”

Nelson, who tossed 52⁄3 scoreless innings, got the game ball as a memento from his 7-1 win over the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced after the game that Gallardo has overcome his left-leg injury and will start on Wednesday.

The Brewers (30-21), who took two out of three games in the series, also got a big performance from right fielder Ryan Braun, who went 4-for-5 with a triple, double and two singles. The former University of Miami star was a homer shy of the cycle.

“That was good to see,” Roenicke said. “We had a lot of hitters going with the pitch. Offensively, we did a real nice job.”

Miami (26-25) fell to 20-8 at home, which is still the best record in their own park of any team in the majors.
