Love talking Cardinals baseball? Check out
After losing Saturday night in heart-breaking fashion, the St. Louis Cardinals needed a win to stay ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Wild Card standings.
When Shelby Miller was called up earlier in September after rosters expanded, everyone was curious about what kind of impact the highly touted prospect would have. On Sunday afternoon, when the Cardinals needed him most, Miller came through.
Miller picked up his first MLB victory in the Cardinals 5-2 win in twelve innings on Sunday afternoon against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After the Cardinals and Dodgers pushed the game to extra innings, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny called on Shebly Miller to pitch the bottom of the eleventh inning and Miller did so brilliantly, allowing just one hit while striking out one. Miller threw strikes as nine of his fourteen pitches were over the plate and came through in a clutch situation.
