Cubs' Wade Miley: Quality start in no-decision

Miley didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-4 win against the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six innings. Miley was given an early three-run lead and cruised through the first five innings but ran into trouble by allowing four baserunners with two out in the sixth tie the game. The 35-year-old tossed a season-high 85 pitches but induced just five swinging strikes and he's now recorded 10 strikeouts in 16 total innings. After a poor outing on April 10, Miley has surrendered three runs in 13 innings over his last two starts and will look to keep rolling against the White Sox next weekend.

Cubs 9, Pirates 0: The Willson Contreras and Wade Miley show

The Cubs are making a recent habit of blowing out the Pirates, and I could sure get used to it. Monday night, an eight-run first inning was highlighted by Willson Contreras’ grand slam, which was also his 100th career home run.

All of that added up to a 9-0 Cubs win — and that score was specifically called by BCB reader mickkelleher in the game preview, so nice work, mick!

Cubs' Wade Miley: Cruises to first win

Miley (1-0) pitched seven shutout innings to earn the win Monday against the Pirates. He allowed just a single hit while striking out six. Outside of a Michael Chavis single in the fifth inning, Miley was flawless in his second start of the season. The lefty allowed three runs across three innings in his 2022 debut Tuesday, so this was clearly a step in the right direction. Miley had been sidelined with an elbow injury and now appears to be fully healthy, going from 64 pitches in his first start to 83 on Monday, and he might have thrown more had the Cubs not been up 9-0 when he departed. The veteran will look to build on this promising performance in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Cubs' Wade Miley: Struggles in 2022 debut

Miley didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 5-4 loss to San Diego, allowing three runs on five hits and five walks with one strikeout in three innings. After being sidelined for the first month of the season with an elbow injury, Miley pitched poorly from the start. He surrendered five baserunners and two runs in the first then three baserunners and one run in the third, with all of the damage coming with two outs in both innings. The 35-year-old found the zone with only 37 of 64 pitches and induced just four swinging strikes. Miley will look to rebound in his next start, which tentatively lines up for next week against Pittsburgh.
