Brewers get barrage of early runs to give Nelson win in debut
MIAMI - Jimmy Nelson's major league debut was remarkably easy in Miami.
Given three runs of support before he took the mound, Nelson shut down the Marlins lineup in a 7-1 win Sunday afternoon at Marlins Park.
Nelson was filling in for Yovani Gallardo, who missed his regularly scheduled turn because of injury.
Ryan Braun had four hits, falling a home run short of the cycle.
The Brewers return home Monday afternoon.
