Shelby Miller is starting to pitch like a staff ace for the Atlanta Braves.

He and Julio Teheran are quite a 1-2 punch for the NL East team.

Sunday afternoon, the right-handed Miller make a bad team look worse by almost throwing a no-hitter.

The 24-year-old Miller took a no-hit bid into the ninth inning and retired two outs before the Marlins’ Justin Bour singled up the middle on the first-pitch. Then Dee Gordon reached on an infield hit.

Miller then induced Martin Prado into popping out to end up winning 6-0 over Miami at Marlins Park.

Miller retired 22 batters in a row from the second inning until Bour’s hit in the ninth.

His velocity was still solid in the ninth inning as his fastball was clocked at 95-mph.

After the game, Florida owner Jeffrey Loria fired manager Mike Redmond with the Marlins struggling with a 16-22 record.

There had been speculation in Dallas for weeks that Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan was going to be fired at the end of the lockout-shortened 48-game NHL season.

Well, at least for now, Black Monday did not get the coach, but the GM instead.

On Sunday night, the Stars fired general manager Joe Nieuwendyk after four seasons, two coaches and no playoffs appearances.

The Stars ended the season with a 22-22-4 mark and out of the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

The 46-year-old Nieuwendyk is a former NHL center playing for Calgary, Dallas, New Jersey, Toronto and Florida from 1987-2007.

For now, Dallas has an option on Coach Gulutzan for a third season.
