Miller allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings Saturday, striking out five, but got a no-decision in an extra-inning win over the Brewers.

It's his seventh straight quality start, and the outing actually raised Miller's ERA on the season to 1.50. He's been throwing a shutout every other start in May, so his next turn, on the road in a pitcher-friendly park in San Francisco on Thursday, could be worth tuning in for.

Miller took a no-hitter into the ninth inning with two outs Sunday before allowing a single to Justin Bour, then allowed another hit before finishing his complete game shutout against the Marlins. He struck out just four batters with the gem, walking one.

Miller improved to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with the outing. While there's some sort of correction coming for him - he entered the day with a .214 BABIP against - it might not occur immediately, with his next start coming at home against the Brewers and then the one after that at San Francisco.

Miller (3-1) gave up six hits and three runs- two earned- with three walks and nine strikeouts in seven innings Thursday against the Reds.

Miller began the sixth with Billy Hamilton reaching on a passed ball strikeout. After Zack Cozart singled, Hamilton scored from second on Joey Votto's RBI single for a 1-0 Reds lead. Tucker Barnhart and Mike Leake had back-to-back homers to make it 3-0 in the seventh. It was Miller's first loss of the season, and he'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Phillies.

Miller kept up his good early-season form on Sunday by throwing six innings against the Blue Jays, giving up two runs and striking out six on the way to his second straight win.

The 24-year-old has now given up just three runs over 16.0 innings pitched this season for a 1.69 ERA to go along with his pair of wins. Miller is off to a very good start and could be headed for even bigger things if he continues to strike out batters at a high rate.

Miller got the win Monday, holding the Marlins to one run in five innings of work.

Miller has only pitched 10 innings in his two starts, but he also has allowed only one run this season. While his starts have been short, the results have been strong thus far for the new Brave. He'll look to continue his success this weekend against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Miller pitched five shutout innings in his regular-season Braves debut Wednesday in Miami, but received no decision in the eventual win. He struck out four while allowing four hits and two walks.

The stat line is solid, but Miller got there very inefficiently, needing 97 pitches to complete five frames. He also didn't get any offensive support from what promises to be a fairly poor Atlanta offense. However, Miller generated 10 groundball outs against zero fly balls, which is quite promising.

Miller has posted a 3.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and .215 BAA in five Grapefruit League starts spanning 18.1 innings this spring. He is expected to make one more exhibition start to prepare for the regular season, MLB.com reports.

Miller's spring debut was a disaster, with the right-hander giving up four runs while recording just one out, but he's allowed just three earned runs in his last four starts (18 innings). "When you get close to the season, you want to start feeling good, and right now, I feel like I'm right where I need to be physically," Miller said after Sunday's outing, his best of the spring so far. Miller held the Pirates to just one hit over six innings in that game.

Miller has been traded to the Braves as part of a four-player swap that will send Jason Heyward to the Cardinals.

The shift to Atlanta firms up Miller's job security, while the Braves will have four years of club control on the former first-round pick. Miller has not tossed 200 innings in a big league season thus far in his career, but at age-24 he offers a much needed stabilizing presence in the middle of the Atlanta rotation. In order for the deal to be considered a success, the Braves will need Miller to push his strikeout rate back up closer to his 2013 level (23.4 K%, 8.8 K/9) after a significant slide last season (16.6% K%, 6.3 K/9) drove a spike in his ERA (3.74) and FIP (4.54).
