And now it's time for the famous racing sausages. It's 9-1. Time for some excitement! Who ya got?
And now it's 8-0 after Wainwright's two-run single. Also worth noting that unless Wainwright falls apart, NL Central tie. That was fast.
Jimmy Nelson's day is complete after 4.1 IP. Six runs so far, two more on base. Doesn't mean future is bleak! Just 1 day. But far from safe.
Meanwhile, Marco Estrada sits in the bullpen, in a timeout, thinking "hey, I could do this!" I suspect Nelson gets more chances.
Man, Kolten Wong has turned into Jose Abreu this week. He's hitting a home run every day! It's definitely surprising.
And it's 3-0 as Cruz singles in two. Tough first inning for Nelson. Throwing hard, good change, but he was hit hard. Only one run earned.
Bases loaded, one out in the first inning and Yadi... um, no, Tony Cruz is up. The Molina injury is just so, so impactful.
Matt Carpenter whacks Jimmy Nelson's second pitch into center field for a hit. Sure seems like half the crowd is Cardinals fans...
By the way, my colleague @CrawfordChrisV tells us what to expect from #Brewers top prospect Jimmy Nelson -- es.pn/1zuef1G
@brentjlf: @karabellespn better round 2 keeper next year, Posey, Kinsler, Freddie Freeman?” / Kinsler.
Should be interesting with Jimmy Nelson pitching today. Terrific numbers at Nashville. Intriguing prospect.
@gbasso24: @karabellespn kipnis or Dozier ROS?” / Still Kipnis for me. Love both. Kip is running a lot lately.
And here's another look from right field. Beautiful ballpark. pic.twitter.com/KwbZQ4oRy7

@SunCityCDG: @SultanofStat @karabellespn You guys have ruined me! pic.twitter.com/bdRMtpeyb9”. /. Ruined? Or educated and enhanced?
@ArchdukeCollins: @karabellespn I can't believe people are dropping yadier Molina!” / His season is possibly over. Move on.
@JoeBacanovic: @SultanofStat @karabellespn how do you deal with collusion...can't 100% prove it...but something is up” / Find new league
@grady787: @karabellespn do you think abreu is going to break rookie home run record?” / I'll say he hits 43.
MT @TheRealPodVader: #The06010: @karabellespn @SultanofStat talk C, 2B fill-ins, trade what you must to get Kershaw! bit.ly/1jjEpPR
Way to go Cleveland. And way to go LeBron.
Even Dom Brown is getting hits now. I mean, come on. Seven-run eighth inning?
Wow, a team going nowhere might get 4-game sweep at Milwaukee. Wonder if Papelbon signed up for this... Send him packing.
That seems so Garza-like, based on his career. Pitching a gem, no hits for awhile, leaves up 1-0 with 2 men on, both score, and he can lose.
