They pulled him because they saw that he had no chance to climb back into that game. They'd rather rest him than risk an injury. I guess one injured starter is enough....

Who cares about that? How about a little confidence for the man? Perhaps make it to the third???

Yikes ... looks like something is wrong with Miller

from Rotoworld:

Wade Miller lasted just two innings and gave up six runs -- five earned -- tonight against the Braves.
No word yet, but there had to have been something wrong with Miller, as he was allowed to bat in the bottom of the second before being pulled to start the third. All six runs scored in the first.

They quoted him in the postgame AP recap as just saying he didn't have it and his fastball wasn't working. I wouldn't necessarily read into the fact that he wasn't pinch hit for as meaning he is injured, because there were 2 outs when his spot came up in the inning, and they probably just didn't want to waste a pinch hitter with noone on base, Berkman unavailable, and the likely need to use most of their bench with the starter leaving so early in the game with pinch hitters.
