Jimmy Nelson earned his first win of the season on the hill for the Brewers in a 5-1 victory over the Reds Thursday night. Nelson pitched seven innings striking out five and allowing just the one earned run. Ryan Braun blasted a two-run home run and Eric Thames found the seats with a solo blast in the win.
Game two of the four-game series in Cincinnati starts tonight at 6:10 PM. Milwaukee will look to make it four wins in a row.
