A lack of run support or recent wins weren’t enough to keep Braves pitcher Shelby Miller from a deserved spot on the National League All-Star team.
Miller, who has a modest 5-4 record despite a 2.07 ERA, was named to his first NL All-Star team in his third full major league season and first with the Braves.
“Honestly, I’m a little speechless,” said Miller, 24. “It’s exciting. You don’t know exactly what to say for your first All-Star game, but I’m blown away by it, for sure.”
