Miley (4-3) took the loss to the Rockies on Friday, allowing eight runs on 11 hits and three walks while striking out five over three innings. On the heels of his no-hitter against Cleveland, Miley fell flat on his face in Colorado. The eight runs allowed matched Miley's total from his first six starts of the season combined. Pitching at altitude is difficult for any pitcher, but especially so for a pitcher with Miley's modest swing-and-miss abilities. He still has a 3.69 ERA after this hiccup.
Miley's next start has been pushed back one day, switching spots with Luis Castillo, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Miley will pitch on Friday, with Castillo getting pushed up to Thursday. Miley threw 114 pitches in Friday's no-hitter against Cleveland. "I think it accomplishes a couple of different things," Reds manager David Bell said on Wednesday. "Wade, there's somewhat not only physical effort that went into his no-hitter the other day, but just the emotional, the mental grind of  pitches, complete game and then everything surrounding it."
Miley (4-2) pitched a no-hitter versus Cleveland on Friday. He walked one and struck out eight over nine shutout innings in the win. Miley's bid for a perfect game ended in the sixth inning when Cleveland's Amed Rosario reached on an error. Two batters later, Miley walked Cesar Hernandez, but he rebounded well over the final three frames. The 34-year-old southpaw needed 114 pitches (72 strikes) to complete the historic feat. He's been effective this year with a 2.00 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 36 innings. Miley is projected to face the Pirates in a favorable matchup next week.
Miley (3-2) picked up the win in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three. The veteran southpaw gave up runs in each of the first two innings, but Miley settled down afterward and benefited from another offensive eruption by the Reds. He exited after throwing 99 pitches (61 strikes), and he'll take a 2.67 ERA and 19:7 K:BB through 27 innings into his next outing.
Miley (2-2) allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across six innings to take the loss Saturday against St. Louis. Miley got off to a shaky start, as he allowed three singles and one earned run in the first inning. However, he rebounded to turn in another strong outing by letting only three more hitters reach base across his next five frames of work. Despite punching out only 16 batters across 22 innings, Miley has maintained a strong 2.45 ERA to this point in the season. He's projected to draw his next start Friday against the Cubs.
