Last night, St. Louis Cardinal rookie phenom, Shelby Miller, recorded 27 straight outs without a runner reaching base. Perfect, right? Not so much. Eric Young, Jr. led off the game with a single on a 3-1 count, which seemed like nothing at the time. Then, everyone started getting out. According to Baseball Reference, only 18 pitchers have had a higher Game Score than Miller’s 98. That means he had a better Game Score than several no-hitters, perfect games, 20+ K games, etc. Essentially, without getting into the record books, Miller threw one of the best games in MLB history last night. In an real-life display of the Bad Luck Brian meme, Miller recorded 13 strikeouts to go along with his 27 consecutive outs, en route to what is possibly the most dominant 1-hitter of all time and a Cardinals win. Better luck next time, Shelby.
