"Offense got some runs early and often, and kept scoring the whole game," Miley said. "Definitely makes it a lot easier to go out there and just try to throw strikes and get us back in the dugout."
Miley gave up just five hits in six scoreless frames, walking three and fanning two as he improved to 7-6.
"I thought Wade made some big pitches to get out of that fourth inning when it's still a two-run game at the time," Boston manager John Farrell said of when Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon singled to open the fourth. "We go out and put up a five-spot, and then again came out and made some big pitches to keep momentum on our side."
