Miller entered with a 15-game winless streak. He has eight losses during the stretch, despite having a 3.16 ERA over the 15 games.
The Braves scored only 30 runs during the 15 games and struggled to score again on Sunday. Atlanta finally took a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning against Rubby De La Rosa.
