Braves-Phillies Preview

(AP) -- Shelby Miller has been effective in his first three starts with the Atlanta Braves, but that success has come despite the shortcomings that made much of his 2014 season forgettable following him to the NL East.

Miller will face a Phillies lineup Saturday night in Philadelphia that could again allow him to get away with control issues, though the 24-year-old knows it's something he'll have to straighten out if a consistent season is to follow.

Miller (2-0, 1.69 ERA) has won consecutive starts after Sunday's 5-2 victory in Toronto, limiting a potent Blue Jays lineup to two runs and five hits while striking out six in six innings as he continues to refine a cutter.
