ST. LOUIS, June 18 (UPI) -- Shelby Miller tossed five scoreless innings and Yadier Molina provided a key two-run double Monday in Atlanta's rain-delayed 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Miller (8-4) shook off a 2-hour rain delay to start the contest, baffling the Cubs on two hits. The right-hander issued two walks and struck out five.
