Shelby Miller almost no-hit the Marlins but Justin Bour refused to let it happen. Bour's ninth inning single ended Miller's no-hit bid. Bour told MLB.com's Joe Frisaro he just took advantage of a fastball:
"All of Shelby's stuff was working good tonight, so I was just looking for that first good pitch that I could do something with," Bour said. "He got me pretty good that first at-bat, and I just took advantage of a fastball on the last at-bat."

Steve Cishek has struggled to this point in 2015 and his inability to throw strikes consistently may result from a delivery issue.
