While the Indians struggled with the Pirates at Progressive Field for the second straight night, it was not a good night as well for lefty relief pitcher Andrew Miller, who pitched in relief in a rehab stint down in AA Akron for the Rubberducks.
David Glasier of the News-Herald sent out word via Twitter of the tough night for Miller, who went just 1/3 of an inning, throwing 24 pitches 12 strikes.
He allowed four runs on two hits, with a walk and he also hit a batter in an effort against the Altoona Curve.
Miller came into the game in the game with one out in the 7th inning.
Tuesday Miller was transferred from the 10-day to the 60-day DL, a move that basically means nothing as he will be eligible on Wednesday to come off the disabled list.
Indians manager Terry Francona has said that Miller won’t be activated until he pitches in back-to-back games, something he is not scheduled to do until the weekend.
