31-year old lefty reliever Andrew Miller of the Cleveland Indians was named the MVP of the A.L.C.S. last night after they eliminated the Toronto Blue Jays in five games! Miller pitched in 4 games (0 starts) against the Blue Jays in the A.L.C.S. and he was 0-0 with 1 save, 3 holds with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.39 WHIP. Miller only gave up 3 hits and 0 walks while whiffing 14 batters in his 7 2/3 innings in the A.L.C.S! He definitely deserved this award as he was amazing for the Tribe against the Jays.
Miller has now pitched in 6 games (0 starts) in the post-season for the Indians so far this year and he is 1-0 with 1 save, 4 holds with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP. Miller has given up 5 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 21 batters in 11 2/3 scoreless innings so far this post-season! He has now pitched in 12 games (0 starts) so far in his career in the post-season and he is 1-0 with 1 save, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.45 WHIP! Miller has only given up 6 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 31 batters in 20 scoreless post-season innings so far in his career!
Acquiring Miller at the trade deadline was an outstanding move by the Cleveland Indians!
