Seattle Mariners’ Bryce Miller is doing something that hasn’t been done in the last 23 years of the team’s history.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Seattle Mariners defeated the San Diego Padres thanks to a great start by Bryce Miller.

Miller threw 6.0 shutout innings, which turned out to be one of the rarest numbers for the Mariners organization during the 2000s.

According to @JayHayKid from the “Baseball is Dead” podcast on social media:

Bryce Miller is the first Mariners pitcher since Aaron Sele in 2001 to start a season with 6+ IP, 0 R, 0 BB, and no more than 1 strikeout.

Miller allowed five hits and no walks and didn’t record a strikeout until the final batter of the afternoon. He threw 80 balls, 54 of which were strikes, in that outing. The Padres put the ball in play, but overall the Mariners were able to make plays behind Miller.

The Padres had a chance to score on Miller’s throw in the second inning, but Julio Rodriguez neutralized the runner with an 8-2 double play, ending the threat.

Miller is now 7-7 on the season with a 3.63 ERA. After debuting a year ago, Miller has thrown 109.0 innings this year. He will be out until the All-Star break. If the Mariners want to use him as a reliever on Sunday, they could probably throw him in an inning, but at this point that seems unlikely.

Miller has struck out 98 batters in those 109.0 innings. He is now 15-14 in his career.

The Mariners are 51-43 after winning their next two games. They will face the Los Angeles Angels in a four-game series that begins Thursday night in Anaheim.

In the division, the M’s still have a 2.0-point lead over the Astros.
