St. Louis Cardinals rookie Shelby Miller was nearly perfect in a one-hit shutout over the Colorado Rockies. Miller gave up a base hit to start the game to Eric Young Jr.  and retired the next 27 batters in a row for his first complete game victory, 3-0  over Colorado. Miller struck out 13 batters and lowered his ERA to 1.39, which is the lowest for a Cardinals pitcher in his first eight starts since Howie Pollet had a 2.09 ERA in his first eight in 1941.  For the season he has 54 strikeouts in 45 innings pitched and a WHIP of 0.89. “I feel really good,” Miller said. “It’s definitely the best game I’ve thrown in my life. How it finished was unbelievable. It was a great experience. Yadi (catcher Yadier Molina) was calling a great game and they were making great plays for me. It was a start I’ll remember the rest of my life.” Fantasy Play: Miller was  exceptional  and has been all season.  To think I was able to grab him in post-draft waivers early in the season.  The bad part is I released him after one start.
