Miller helps Cardinals beat Pirates 1-0
Question of the Day
That outing was in complete contrast to Miller’s history vs. Pittsburgh. Miller (2-2) entered the game with a 0-5 record and a 5.93 ERA against the Pirates. He allowed just three hits and four walks while striking out four.
“I’m excited to get a win in general” Miller said. “But, obviously, I’ve struggled against Pittsburgh and they’re a tough team. They’re lineup’s great and they got good starting pitching and a good offense. They’re not easy to get out.
“That’s the first one against them. It’s good to get it out of the way.”
MIller said that he made just a few subtle changes, but they paid off.
“I found some back door cutters,” he said. “I ended going in a little bit more on righties and just kind of mixing it up a little differently.”
“You kind of hate to keep doing that to these guys, having to be perfect,” Matheny said. “The bullpen did a terrific job.”
Matt Holliday had three hits, a walk and drove in the only run with a first-inning double. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina singled in the eighth inning to extend his hitting streak to 15 games, matching his career high set in 2007.
Pirates starter Gerrit Cole (2-2) pitched seven innings and allowed a run on six hits with three walks and four strikeouts.
“We knew there would be challenges coming into the season,” said Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle. “We’re getting to face our fair share of them in April. You just keep mounting up and you keep playing.”
St. Louis got the only run it would need in the first. Matt Carpenter led off with a bunt single down the third baseline and he went to second on Jon Jay’s fielder’s choice to first. Holliday then doubled to right, scoring Carpenter.
