Matt Crouse has been a valuable addition to the rotation this season after starting the year in the Erie SeaWolves’ bullpen. He has six wins and had one of his biggest performances against the Bowie Baysox last week. Crouse allowed just three hits and had four strikeouts in eight shutout innings as Erie beat Bowie 4-0 to start a crucial four-game series. Crouse has a 4.53 ERA this season and 87 strikeouts to only 33 walks in 1111⁄3 innings. He has been a key contributor this season and will be counted on down the stretch as Erie chases a spot in the postseason.
