Jimmy Nelson faces Kershaw on Sunday at Miller Park

By Matt Trebby. CREATED Aug 10, 2014

Luckily for the Brewers, they already have won two games in their series against the Dodgers.

Why is that lucky? Well, Clayton Kershaw is on the mound for Los Angeles on Sunday against the Brewers.

You can tell there is a left-hander on the mound for the opposition by looking at the Brewers' lineup, which features all right-handed bats on Sunday. Rickie Weeks, Khris Davis and Mark Reynolds are all starting against Kershaw.

Kershaw has been spectacular this season. He is 13-2 with a 1.82 earned run average and a WHIP of 0.85. He only has 18 starts this season after missing the start of the year with a back injury.

In five starts this season, Jimmy Nelson has three quality starts, all of which have come in his last three outings. He has a 4.20 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Here's how the Brewers will look on Sunday afternoon at Miller Park:
