Miller went the distance giving up seven hits and two walks and one man reached on an error. Miller was able to strand all ten runners because he struck out ten in the game and four coming in key situations.

Miller struck out two in the third inning after Jim Ramirez reached on an error by third baseman Mike Dayett and Scott Lyons (three hits) singled him to third base. Miller struck out Arthur Boyle and Butch Milligan and got Bobby Geronimo on a routine fly out to leftfielder Darrell Henderson.

In the fifth Miller gave up a ;ead off single to Geronimo and a one out walk to Jim Collins. The lefty escaped any damage by getting Skinny Hines to force Collins at second base (3-6) and struck out pitcher Jim Batch.
