Braves Shelby Miller Tosses Shutout Against Phillies

ATLANTA (AP) – Shelby Miller threw his third career shutout, Freddie Freeman and Kelly Johnson hit homers to spoil Chad Billingsley’s first start in more than two years, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-0 on Tuesday night.
Miller (4-1) allowed only three hits and one walk with eight strikeouts. He has not allowed more than two runs in any of his six starts.
Billingsley (0-1) gave up six runs, five earned, in five innings. The right-hander fought back from two major surgeries on his pitching arm to make his first start since April 15, 2013, for the Dodgers against San Diego.
Freeman had three hits, including a two-run homer in the first. Johnson, who drove in four runs, hit a three-run shot in the fourth. He added a sixth-inning single for his 1,000th career hit.
