ATLANTA -- As Shelby Miller masterfully sliced and diced Philadelphia's lineup on Tuesday night at Turner Field, he gave the Braves further reason to be satisfied with their choice to gain four years of his services in exchange for what would have been Jason Heyward's last year in Atlanta.
Those who might have lamented the November trade that sent Heyward to St. Louis have likely changed their tune as Miller has looked like nothing less than a potential ace through his first month with the Braves. The young hurler added to his early-season success with the dominant three-hit shutout he completed during Tuesday night's 9-0 win over the Phillies.
