Wade Miley SP BOS 2 days ago

Miley took the loss Saturday against the Rays, but put in one of his stronger efforts of the year, striking out eight and allowing two runs across 6.1 innings.

Blame the loss on Boston's inability to score until the eighth inning and less on Miley. The eight strikeouts ties his season high, while allowing only two runs will bring his ERA down to 4.38, its lowest mark since his season debut. Boston's rotation, and Miley by extension, has drawn some flak, but he's beginning to look at least close to league average.

Miley pitched six shutout innings Sunday, giving up five hits and three walks while striking out two in a 13-2 win over Kansas City. He's won two straight starts, giving up a total of two runs over 12.1 innings to lower his season ERA to 4.50.

Miley lived dangerously in this one, putting multiple runners on base in three of his six innings, but he made big pitches when the game with still close. This was Miley's seventh quality start of the season.

Miley gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over 6.1 innings Tuesday against the Braves.

He tied a season high with the eight strikeouts, responding well after he left his last start early and argued with manager John Farrell in the dugout Thursday. Miley received plenty of run support, leaving with a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. He still sits at a 4.88 ERA on the season and despite Tuesday's effort he has just 50 strikeouts in 72 innings. The southpaw will look to build on his recent success in his next start Sunday in Kansas City.

Miley allowed two runs on six hits, walking one and striking out six over 7.1 innings of a 4-2 win against Oakland on Friday night.

After posting a horrible 8.62 ERA in April, Miley (5-5, 4.67 ERA) was cruising through May until stumbling in his last outing against the Rangers. It was encouraging to see him get back on track in this one, and the disappointing Red Sox will hope he can build on it as the season moves forward.

Miley allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out two in Saturday night's loss to the Rangers. The left-hander had won three straight starts before losing Saturday.

Miley didn't make pitches when he needed to, but he was mostly let down by poor defense and uninspired play from his teammates. As the Red Sox churn the roster, Miley's job appears to be safe, but this was the third time in 10 starts he's failed to pitch past the fourth inning.

Miley allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out two in eight innings in Sunday's win over the Angels. Sixty-one of his 97 pitches went for strikes and he threw first-pitch strikes to 16 of 28 batters.

Miley, who retired the first 14 batters faced, earned his third straight win and lowered his ERA to 4.47, after finishing April at 8.62. He credits the command of his fastball as a major reason for his turnaround, but throwing first-pitch strikes has helped, too.

Miley, who had an awful April, has a 3.04 ERA with 19 strikeouts and six walks in four May starts.

Miley submitted what may have been his best effort of the season Tuesday night when he struck out seven and painted the corners in win over Texas. His numbers are still ugly, but he's been competitive in the four starts since, an encouraging sign for the pitcher whom Boston signed to a contract extension earlier this year.

Miley gave up two runs on seven hits across seven innings pitched in Tuesday's win over Texas.

Miley earned win number three on the season walking one batter and striking out seven. It was a solid performance for Miley who still holds an ERA of 5.10 and had been struggling up to this point. He's now 3-4 on the year with the 5.10 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He'll get the Twins in Minnesota in his next start.

Miley (2-4) didn't allow a run over 6.2 innings in a win over Oakland on Wednesday despite allowing five hits and four walks with only one strikeout.

He pitched out of trouble and got a win, outdueling Oakland ace Sonny Gray, but putting all those runners on base isn't much of a formula for success. Then again, Miley was due for some good luck, as he owned a strikingly low 52.8 percent strand rate coming into the game. Nonetheless, even though the peripherals say that Miley's been a little better than his 5.60 ERA indicates, he's still not much of a fantasy asset outside of very deep formats. He'll draw a home start against the Rangers his next time out.
