Miley allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out nine in 6.2 innings in Tuesday night's win over the Marlins.

Miley pitched well, striking out a season-high number of batters, but tired after six innings (98 pitches) and allowed a couple of runs in the seventh that gave Miami the lead. The Red Sox came back in the bottom of the inning to take the lead, absolving Miley of a potential loss.

Miley (8-7) allowed four runs, seven hits and seven walks while striking out two in five innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Miley won for the third time in four starts and snapped a five-start losing streak against AL East opponents. The left-hander matched a career high with seven walks, but with an eight run cushion in the first, it didn't matter much. Miley will face off against Miami in his next start Wednesday.

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 (5-6) allowed five runs and nine hits over four innings Thursday against the Orioles. He struck out three.

After finishing the fourth, the left-hander engaged in a heated exchange with manager John Farrell in the dugout. Still screaming, Miley walked into the tunnel with Farrell in pursuit. Miley and Farrell have since settled their differences, and Miley will take the mound again Tuesday against the Braves.

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.
