Wade Miley Sparkles In 2-0 Red Sox Series Win

OK, remember all that talk (earlier this afternoon) about demoting Wade Miley? Well, you can deep-six that. Miley pitched 6.2 solid—albeit 'high-wire act'—innings in a 2-0 Red Sox victory this afternoon. The lefty gave up just five hits to the pathetic A's, walked four and didn't strike out anyone. Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara finished off the win. Daniel Nava knocked in the eventual game-winner with an RBI single in the second inning. The slumping Nava collected two of Boston's six hits—with Dustin Pedroia (who is now hitting .292) getting two hits as well. Hanley Ramirez had the other two Red Sox hits. Boston took the rubber match of the three-game series in a stunning 2 hours and 33 minutes.
