* ATLANTA, Georgia - In his first season with the Braves, Shelby Miller has earned a spot on the National League roster for the July 14 MLB All-Star game in Cincinnati.

 Miller was announed by Manager Bruce Bochy after 6:00 p.m. during the selection show of pitching staffs and reserves for the mid-summer classic.

 Miller is currently 4th in the NL in earned run average at 2.07 per game. The right-hander is 5-4 on the season and has been involved in six no decisions since May 17. The latest was Sunday when he threw seven innings of scoreless ball against the Phillies.

 But the offense gave him no support and the Braves would lose in extra innings 4-0. That snapped a 4-game winning streak.

 Another item was last year's rep for the Braves from the bullpen, Craig Kimbrel, didn't get selected this year in his first season with the San Diego Padres.

 Kimbrel, the NL's top closer the last four seasons, is sixth in the league with 21 saves. The former Wallace State Lion has a 3.19 ERA entering this week with one blown save.

 The NL went with two closers ranked ahead of Kimbrel in saves in Mark Melancon of the Pirates (NL leader with 27) and Trevor Rosenthal of the Cardinals (3rd with 24). They also chose as relivers Francisco Rodriguez of the Brewer (18 saves), Arodolis Chpman of the Reds (16) and Jonathan Paplebon of the Phillies (14).

 Miller is probable to pitch again Friday when the Braves play at Colorado. That will give him a few days before the All-Star break with the game to be at the Great American Ball Park next Tuesday.
