Wade Miley Sets The 'Pace' For Sox Starters

Not only did Wade Miley deliver five shoutout innings yesterday—he also pitched at a pace that will put a smile of Commissioner Rob Manfred's face. In the tie with the Pirates, Rusney Castillo and Jackie Bradley, Jr. each had two hits and Alan Craig had an RBI. The left-handed Miley took a total of 19 minutes to work his five frames—talking an average of 17 seconds to deliver each pitch. Gee, maybe there's a correlation between working fast and getting batters out. Greg Maddux could not be reached for comment.
