Nelson wild in Brewers' 6-2 loss to Indians

CLEVELAND — Jimmy Nelson had no one to blame but himself. The Brewers' right-hander had a career-high eight walks in 3 1/3 innings, three of whom scored, as the Cleveland Indians beat Milwaukee 6-2 on Wednesday night. Nelson (10-10) allowed five runs and threw a wild pitch in having his four-game winning streak snapped. It was his first loss since July 10 and ended a string of 21 consecutive starts of at least five innings.

 

Packers look for group effort to replace Jordy Nelson

GREEN BAY — The task of finding receivers who will fill the void left by Jordy Nelson's season-ending injury has started in earnest in Green Bay.

Now Cobb is clearly the top option with Nelson out with a right knee injury.

In fact, it might be the wrong question to ask, or at least the wrong question to ask first.
