Former Lion LHP Wade Miley was called up to The Show on Sunday evening to join the Arizona Diamondbacks. Miley, coming off of a complete game win with the AAA Reno Aces, becomes the first Lion to reach the Majors Leagues since Jeff Williams did it with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1996.
The Loranger, LA native threw a complete game 3 hitter against the New Orleans Zephyrs on Saturday night at Zephyr Field in front of a electric crowd there to see him (it was like a Reno Aces home game). And the Lions all time strikeout leader didn't disappoint. Miley surrendered one run on three hits and recorded nine strikeouts. But what his followers enjoyed most was his 3-4 performance at the plate. With the Aces Miley was 4-1 with a 3.64 ERA and recorded 54 strikeouts.
Congrats and good luck Wade Miley!
