by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/25/2015) Shelby Miller continued to be thwarted by a lack of run support, as the Braves starter pitched well put took the loss in a 1-0 pitcher's duel against the Cardinals on Saturday. 

Miller went 7 1/3 innings, and allowed just two hits while striking out four hitters, but lost his fifth straight decision to drop to 5-7 despite holding an ERA of 2.27.

A.J. Burnett, Shelby Miller among NL All Stars not to pitch in game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2015) Five healthy National League pitchers didn't get into Tuesday's All Star Game:

A.J. Burnett, Pirates; Carlos Martinez, Cardinals; Shelby Miller, Braves; Jonathan Papelbon, Phillies; Michael Wacha, Cardinals

Braves SP Shelby Miller eager to return to old stomping grounds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) All-Star Shelby Miller has made 18 starts for the Braves this season, but he might be more eager for No. 20 than any of the others.

That will will be July 25 at Busch Stadium against the Cardinals, who traded him to Atlanta.

"I'm definitely excited to be back there," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Miller added that his improvement, which has resulted in a 5-5 record and 2.38 ERA (ranking sixth in the National League) had nothing to do with the deal. Rather, it was the result of his work on a sinker that has continued to improve.

His next start is slated for Sunday against the Cubs.


Braves SP Shelby Miller unable to limit damage in loss Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/10/2015) Braves right-hander Shelby Miller struggled in his outing against the Rockies on Friday. Miller allowed five runs on a season-high 11 hits. He walked one and struck out seven in five innings of work, as the Braves lost to the Rockies 5-3.

Miller (5-5) allowed an early run in the first inning, and then settled in before allowing three runs to cross in the fourth inning. He also served up a solo home run to Carlos Gonzalez in the fifth inning. 

This was a step backwards for Miller, who threw seven shutout innings in his previous start. He ends the first half of the season with a 3.66 ERA over his last eight starts. He hasn't won a game since May 17.

"It's a tough place to pitch," said Miller, per MLB.com. "I didn't make pitches, and it's absolutely my fault."

Braves SP Shelby Miller strong in no-decision


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Miller went 6 1/3 innings, scattering seven hits, but didn't allow any runs. He struck out eight and walked just two in the 108-pitch effort. 

Despite the strong work, Miller still hasn't picked up a victory since May 17, with three losses and six no-decisions over that timeframe. His ERA is still a very respectable 2.07, among the NL league leaders.

Despite earning a quality start in three of his last four starts, Miller has not received a win in his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday at New York Mets.


Braves SP Shelby Miller fails to go five innings in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) For the first time this season, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller was not able to pitch at least five innings during Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Miller allowed a season-high four runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings of work. He also walked a season-high six batters while striking out two and  he received a no-decision for his effort.

Tuesday's start broke his streak of earning a quality start in his last eight starts. Miller had allowed a total of four runs in his last four starts before surrendering four runs Tuesday. His next expected start is scheduled for Monday against the Padres.

"I just didn't get in the groove type thing, but those kinds of days happen," Miller said, per MLB.com. "I mean, you're human. You look at Felix Hernandez's start [on Monday night in a Mariners' 7-1 loss to the Yankees] and other guys who are doing well have poor starts. That kind of stuff's going to happen."


Braves SP Shelby Miller allows one run in Thursday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Despite only surrendering one run during Thursday's game against the Giants, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller received a loss for his effort.

Miller (5-2) tossed seven solid innings and allowed one run on five hits during the 7-0 loss. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, which tied his season low. His lone mistake was giving up a home run to Brandon Belt in the sixth inning. It was the first home run hit off Miller since April 30.

"Tough hit to give up at that point of the ballgame. I can't do that right there," Miller said. "I'm taking the blame on that loss."

The quality start was his eighth in a row. Miller has allowed a total of four runs in his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Arizona.


Braves pitcher Shelby Miller strikes out five in no-decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Braves pitcher Shelby Miller allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings of work in Atlanta's 3-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday in 11 innings, but did not factor into a decision.

Miller had just two issues in the game, one coming in the first inning. After allowing a leadoff double to Carlos Gomez, Miller gave up a single to Ryan Braun to drive home a run. Then in the fourth, Miller put runners on first and second with two outs before allowing an RBI single to Martin Maldonado. It was Miller's shortest outing in his last five appearances. 

"Did I have my best stuff today? No," Miller said to 680 The Fan. "But my teammates did a good job hanging in there with me, making some good plays."

Miller, who remains 5-1, moved his ERA to 1.50 in 60 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Giants.


Braves SP Miller looks to continue hot streak in start against Brewers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller has been on fire to start the season.

Miller (5-1) will get the start on Saturday against the Brewers, where he will look to extend his excellent start to the season.

Through eight starts, Miller has a 1.33 ERA.


Shelby Miller's promising start has piqued interest of opposing teams


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Thanks to a strong start to the season, teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller as a potential trade target, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

However, Heyman writes it is hard to see the Braves moving Miller since he is still under team control through 2018.

The right-hander, who was acquired in an offseason trade with St. Louis, is coming off a two-hit shutout against the Marlins. He is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA through eight starts.


Braves starter Shelby Miller loses no-hitter with two outs in ninth inning


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller (5-1) did not allow a hit through 8 2/3 innings Sunday before the Marlins' Justin Bour smacked a single up the middle with two outs in the ninth to ruin the no-hit bid.

"He put a good swing on it," Miller said. "I wish it would have finished differently."

Miller had faced the minimum before Bour's hit. The right hander had walked Marcell Ozuna to lead off the second inning, but the centerfielder was erased on a double play.

"Obviously things didn't finish as we wanted to, but at the same time we got a sweep," Miller said. "In the end I had a lot of fun."

It appeared that the Marlins had a hit in the third inning when pitcher Henderson Alvarez initally beat out an infield chopper, but the call was overturned by replay.

Dee Gordon followed Bour with an infield hit before Miller got the final out -- ending the day with a two-hit shutout victory.

Miller fanned four and tossed 94 pitches in the gem. 

In his last three starts, Miller has allowed one run in 25 innings (0.36 ERA).

The last Braves' no-hitter was in April 1994 when Kent Mercker threw one in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

Miller's next turn in the rotation is set for Saturday against the Brewers.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Braves starter Shelby Miller stays hot for third straight win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

All was not peachy in the fourth inning when Miller yielded a two-run homer to Ryan Howard that broke a scoreless tie. But his teammates scored three in the seventh to give him the win.

Miller (2-0) cruised through five innings before running into trouble with two outs in the sixth, when he put two men on base with a walk and a single before watching both score on a double.

"He's had our number," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said to MLB.com. "He's pretty good. I remember last year, we were on a nice little roll and he kind of started our tailspin when St. Louis came to town. ... He's a tough assignment and when you spot him five runs, guys like that, it's rare that you come back."

It was the first quality start of the season for Miller, who lasted just five innings in each of his first two starts but allowing just one run combined in those two games. He has posted a 1.69 ERA and 11:7 K:BB ratio in 16 innings heading into Saturday's matchup with the Phillies.
