Yesterday's Game

Miller takes no-hit bid into 8th, Braves top Arizona in 10th - After losing his no-hit bid in the eighth inning, Shelby Miller's winless streak now sits at 16 games and extends over three months.

Arizona Diamondbacks break up no-hit bid but lose on walk-off homer in 10th inning - Miller struck out 10, but again the Braves didn't give him much run support. He had a 3.15 ERA for the first 15 games of his skid, and hasn't won since May 17. He's lost eight times during his drought.

Scouting Dansby Swanson Badly - I live in Portland, Oregon which is a beautiful city of rivers and mountains and beer and pine trees and beer. About the only thing it doesn't have that I wish it had is professional baseball. The closest pro team is the Hillsboro Hops, the short-season Single-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they're about a half hour away by car. In case you are not familiar, here is a hop.
