Memphis routs Zephyrs, 10-203/27/2010 6:30 PM ET
The Memphis Redbirds jumped all over starting pitcher Andrew Miller and the New Orleans Zephyrs on Saturday, scoring six times in the first two innings en route to a 10-2 win in Jupiter, Fla.
Miller, sent to Triple-A by the Marlins earlier in the week, allowed seven runs (five earned) and five hits in four innings. He struck out three, walked two, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch.
Memphis scored three runs in each of the first two innings against Miller. Tyler Henley started the scoring with an RBI single, and came around to score on a home run by Amaury Cazana. Tony Cruz and Donovan Salano added run-scoring singles in the second as the Redbirds built a 6-0 advantage.
Shane Robinson had three hits for Memphis, including a pair of triples.
Redbirds starter Gary Daley and four relievers held the Zephyrs to just four hits, with Daley tossing four scoreless innings.
The only offense for New Orleans came on a two-run homer by center fielder Lorenzo Scott in the seventh off Trey Hearne.
Jarett Santos retired all six batters he faced in relief for the Z's.
Sunday is a camp day for the Zephyrs. They return to spring training action Monday against the Redbirds.
