After what was pretty much a lost season, is he capable of reasserting himself as a top pitching prospect and hopping back on the fast track to Cleveland? He had a very good first outing, so here's to hoping he regains his old form
Akron nips Binghamton
April 7, 2006
Adam Miller hurled six scoreless innings Friday as the visiting Akron Aeros edged the Binghamton Mets, 2-1.
Miller, a top prospect for the Cleveland Indians, came back strong after missing much of last season due to a strained ligament in his elbow. The right-hander allowed three hits and one walk while fanning seven, though he did not figure in the decision.
Binghamton starter Miguel Perez tossed a one-hitter over five scoreless innings, but also left without a decision.
The Aeros (1-1) rallied from a 1-0 deficit with two runs in the eighth inning. With Shaun Larkin at third and Todd Donovan at second, Ivan Ochoa lifted a sacrifice fly to left field against Mets reliever Vincent Cordova. Eddie Camacho then entered the game and gave up an RBI single to Eider Torres.
Cordova (0-1) was charged with two runs on four hits and whiffed two in 2 1/3 innings.
Akron reliever Juan Lara (1-0) yielded one run on three hits and fanned two in 1 2/3 innings. Edward Mujica recorded the last four outs for his first save.
Jay Caligiuri homered for Binghamton (1-1).
The two teams play next at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. --Eric Justic/MLB.com
