Atlanta Braves righty Shelby Miller has etched his name in the history books, becoming the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter in 2015 and the first Braves pitcher to do so since Kent Mercker back in April of 1994.
Miller was electric all day long, giving up just a single walk in a 6-0 Braves victory over the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park.
This is the punctuation mark on what's been an amazing first year with the Braves so far for the former St. Louis Cardinals standout. Miller is now 5-1 with an ERA under 1.40, with today's brush with immortality showcasing his ascent to ace status.
The Braves would explode for five runs in the second and tack on a run in the sixth to give Miller more than enough ammunition to finish off the Marlins. While Miller only struck out four Miami batters, he induced weak contact more often than not with an array of breaking stuff and well-placed fastballs.
All of this adds up to a memorable day on South Beach for the 24-year-old hurler.Back to the Atlanta Braves Newsfeed
