CINCINNATI -- The Brewers saw a side of pitcher Jimmy Nelson on Monday they had not seen this season.
Nelson had been solid through his first three starts, including allowing only one run in eight innings of a 2-1 loss to Cincinnati last Wednesday. It looked like more of the same was coming when Nelson retired the Reds in order Monday to start off the opener of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park.
