               === Cardinals' Miller exits after two pitches ===
 
 St.  Louis,  MO (Sports Network)  - St.  Louis Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller
 left Wednesday's start against the Dodgers in the first inning after being hit
 in  the  right elbow by a  liner off the bat  of Los Angeles left fielder Carl
 Crawford.
 
 Crawford  scorched  Miller's second offering right  back up the middle, and as
 the  right-hander  tried to avoid  the line drive, it  caught him flush on his
 pitching elbow.
 
 Crawford  cruised  into second as  the ball  trickled into the outfield, while
 Miller remained near the mound in obvious pain.
 
 After  meeting  with the training staff,  Miller was removed from the contest.
 Michael Blazek took over on the mound for the Cardinals.
 
 St.  Louis said  later in the game  that Miller was removed with a right elbow
 contusion.
 
 Miller  entered Wednesday's  contest with an 11-7 record and a 2.89 earned run
 average through 21 starts this season.
