Miley (12-6) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Pirates after surrendering six runs (five earned) on 10 hits and a pair of walks while striking out one across 4.1 innings.
While he's piecing together what once looked to be a borderline Cy Young season, Miley fell further down the ranks Tuesday. The left-hander just wasn't as sharp this time, letting the Pirates get to him early with a three-run first inning. Miley held things in check until the fifth, when he was lit up for another three runs en route to the loss. It was the second time this season the 34-year-old allowed six or more runs, and his second unfavorable outing over his last three starts. He'll have his work cut out for him during his next projected start Sunday against the Dodgers.
