Cubs Extend Shelby Miller’s Winless Streak to 17 Games

CHICAGO (AP) – Kris Bryant and Miguel Montero had consecutive RBI doubles in the sixth as the Chicago Cubs extended Shelby Miller’s winless skid to 17 games with a 5-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday.
Anthony Rizzo added an RBI single in the seventh for Chicago.
Jason Motte (8-1) earned the win in relief, starting a string of four innings during which Cubs relievers didn’t allow a hit until pinch-hitter Nick Swisher doubled with one out in the ninth off of closer Hector Rondon.
London recovered to earn his 22nd save in 26 opportunities.
Miller (5-10) dropped his career-high ninth straight decision. Miller only allowed two hits, including Chris Coghlan’s solo homer, over the first five innings, but gave up five runs overall – three earned – after the Braves made a pair of critical errors.
