"It was the game plan," Miley said of an outing that followed Jimenez's 7 2/3 scoreless innings in Wednesday's win. "[I've] faced these guys in the past. We looked over that. We pounded in in the past. We stayed away from them tonight. When [we] felt they were leaning over, we were able to pop them in.
"I was able to execute when I went in."
In his best start since coming to the Orioles last year, Miley retired the first 11 before Joey Votto hit a solo homer with two outs into the fourth inning. The lefty would allow just one more hit, matching his career-high with 11 strikeouts in a masterful 101-pitch outing.
