Nelson's final line was 6 innings, 7 hits, 3 earned runs, a walk, and 6 k's.
"For a big guy known as a power-type pitcher, he has remarkable command", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

"I'll mix him in as much as I can so he can keep his timing".
Hill drove in two with two outs off reliever Rob Scahill (1-2). With runners on second and third and one out, Hernan Perez lofted a fly to left.
Had Tuesday's game been closely contested, the Giants would have looked back at the bloop single -a play a Gold Glover like Crawford often makes- as a turning point.
San Francisco cut the lead to 2-1 in the fourth on Joe Panik's run-scoring single. The Giants tied the score an inning later on Eduardo Nunez's home run. The major league record is 37 by Aroldis Chapman.
Milwaukee starter Junior Guerra, who turned in back-to-back strong starts after coming off the disabled list late last month, struggled with his command.
It's worked out for both sides, Brewers radio announcer Jeff Levering tells WTMJ's Wisconsin's Morning News, noting that Segura not only had a great season in 2016 for the Diamondbacks, but also now leads the American League in hitting (.341) for his new team, the Seattle Mariners. Slater has made nine plate appearances since being called up from Triple-A June 2, drawing a walk with a single and two strikeouts. He struck out 10 batters and didn't issue a walk.
To be fair, we don't mean to include all of Milwaukee's relievers.
"He did a nice job, had to battle through a little bit more", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. Posey fell hard after tripping over first base in the eighth but got to his feet immediately and remained in the game.
Domingo Santana got the scoring started for the Brewers with a solo homer in the first. Now 4-2 on the season, Blach will carry an impressive 3.24 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee. San Francisco will counter with right-hander Johnny Cueto, who is 5-5 with a 4.38 ERA.
