The Shelby Miller lists

As pretty much the entire baseball world knows by now, on Friday night, St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff broken bat single before retiring the next 27 Colorado Rockies in order. I asked researcher Tom Orf to help put this almost-perfect game into perspective. St. Louis Cardinals, 0 walks, 13+ strikeouts Pitcher Date Tm Opp...

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller pitches virtual Perfect Game

Shelby Miller completes the game with 1 hitCredit: Jeff Roberson/AP Twenty-seven up, twenty-seven down. The definition of a perfect game.  Unfortunately, if a leadoff single preceded the 27 outs, the record books won’t record it. Shelby Miller of the St. Louis Cardinals gave up a clean single to Eric Young Jr. (nobody in the crowd even batted an eyelash at the time), then did...

A leadoff single in the top of the first inning to Eric Young Jr. would be the only base runner...

Cardinals 3, Rockies 0

Four Real? Four at bats that changed the game. Red Sox vs Jays 5-10-13

Game 36: Jon Lester is brilliant, Sox win 5-0 Thank goodness for Jon Lester. When the Red Sox needed him most, Lester pitched wonderfully to give Boston a much needed win Friday night.

It ended up being the only blip on the night where Lester ended up  facing 28 batters, one...

St. Louis Cardinals: Shelby Miller throw complete game shutout in 3-0 win over Colorado

The St. Louis Cardinals were expecting to see one of the best offensive teams in baseball this season as the Colorado Rockies came into Busch Stadium Friday night with the second most runs scored in all of baseball.

Game 36: Blue Jays at Red Sox - Worst and First

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer A sense of humility has fallen over Red Sox Nation after the past week. Seven games, one win. Ouch. Tonight, the Boston Red Sox (21-14) welcome the Toronto Blue Jays (13-23) to Fenway Park for the first time this season. These AL East foes are very familiar with each other, as they’ve faced off six times (all in Toronto) with Boston winning four...

Cardinals/Rockies: Three things to walk with

The last thing that you’d think would rule a weekend between the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies would be pitching. But not only was that the case, it was a historical level of pitching effectiveness. Between Shelby Miller, Adam Wainwright and Jorge De La Rosa, 21 complete hitless innings were tossed, and in the two of the starts, no-hitters were far from speculative;...
