Shelby Miller Allowed a Hit, Retired Next 27 Batters in Order Friday

Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

Friday night Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff single to the Rockies Eric Young Jr. From that point forward Miller was perfect, retiring the next 27 Colorado batters in order during St. Louis’ 3-0 victory.

The 22-year-old Miller threw 84 of his 113 pitches for strikes and racked up the highest individual game score of the season at 98, one point better than the Mets’ Matt Harvey who pitched a one-hitter over nine innings earlier in the week vs. the White Sox.

Miller is 5-2 this season with a 1.58 ERA and 51 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings.

Figure this isn’t the last we’ve heard of Miller this year.
