Miller won't have restrictions on pitching going forth

BOSTON Left-hander Andrew Miller will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket. But going forward, he will be used as any other pitcher.

Andrew Miller is off of the designated pitcher of the day and hes a member of the team. Were going to use him as needed. Up until today he had always had a scheduled performance day and we would dictate what it was 15 pitches today, 30 pitches, start an inning, dont start an inning. Now were going to have Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler just use him as needed and see how he progresses.

Miller, though, has been inconsistent in his outings, struggling with command.Thursday against Syracuse, he allowed four walks and a hit with three strikeouts in 1 13 innings. In one-third of an inning April 15 against Buffalo he gave up four runs on a hit and three walks with a strikeout.

It is concerning and I think itll all work out, Valentine said.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
