Andrew Miller’s night is done after 6.1 innings of dominant work against one of the best offenses in the game.
The hook came with Miller up around the pitch count he was given in his last outing after a one-out single to left. His impressive performance tonight, combined with a solid start against Kansas City, has somehow rejuvenated the Andrew Miller experiment. He seemed to have his control down for once, hitting edges and corners when necessary and only giving up a pair of walks. Perhaps most impressive was the sheer lack of significant contact he allowed to one of the best lineups in the majors. On a night when he was expected to be the weakest link for the Sox, he just may have been the strongest.
