Braves P Shelby Miller strikes out 8 in no-decision
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) Braves pitcher Shelby Miller pitched seven strong innings but earned a no-decision in Monday night's 2-1 win over the Reds.
Miller only allowed one run but exited the game with the game tied at 1-1. Luis Avilan entered the game in the eighth inning and earned the win.
Miller struck out eight batters and walked two. He only allowed three hits and now has an impressive 1.60 ERA. This is Miller's third game in a row where he's recorded at least eight strikeouts. He now has 39 for the season.
"The first two innings I was kind of rushing a little bit," Miller said. "[Pierzynski] saw some things with my mechanics, which was nice. After that we settled in pretty good. I was just trying to put up zeroes. We did a good job of that as well."
Miller's next start is projected for Sunday against the Marlins.
