Miller remains the bat man

Ozaukee High School alumnus Owen Miller excelled in his second consecutive all-star game in different leagues.
On June 25, Miller, who plays shortstop for the Amarillo Sod Poodles, a double-A affiliate of San Diego Padres, helped the Texas League South Division to a 5-1 victory over the North Division.
Miller clocked a double to deep center field in the fifth inning to advance two runners in a then 1-0 contest. One later scored on an error to double the lead.
Miller went 1-for-3 on the night and started at shortstop.
Last Sunday, Miller halted a four-game hitless streak by going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk to help the Soddies to an 11-6 win over the Corpus Christi Hooks.
Miller leads the Texas League in hits with 91, which is 11 more than any other player. His .305 batting average is fifth in the league.
He has 15 doubles, eight home runs, 42 RBI and 26 walks. His on-base percentage is .368 and his slugging percentage is .436.
Miller, 22, was drafted by the Padres in the third round, the 84th pick overall, last year. He played for the short season single-A affiliate the Tri-City Dust Devils and made the Northwest League all-star team. He was then promoted to the single-A Fort Wayne TinCaps and then the Double-A San Antonio Missions, a team that became the Sod Poodles, for the playoffs.
