Muller (1-3) allowed one run on two hits and three walks over four innings Wednesday, striking out one and taking the loss in the first game of a doubleheader against the Padres.

Largely due to the trio of free passes and the Padres working a lot of deep counts, Muller required 87 pitches to get through four frames. The rookie fared well in limiting San Diego's potent lineup to a single run, but the lack of run support while he was in the game resulted in a loss, his third in four starts. A frequent traveler between Atlanta and Triple-A Gwinnett, Muller now has a 3.20 ERA and 23:11 K:BB in 19.2 big-league innings this season and figures to stay in the starting rotation for the remainder of the regular season. He's expected to make his next start Monday against the Mets.
