Crushers fall to CornBelters 4-1
Jeff Isom has a lot of theories. One of them pertains to his starting pitchers, and it rang true on Tuesday night. Isom likes to say that out of ten starts, a pitcher will have his best stuff in two of them. In two others, they'll lack their usual good command. In the other six, they will be somewhere in between.

Crushing the Numbers: 8/6/13 to 8/12/2013

Then, they proceeded to slam Joliet, sweeping the slammers and outscoring them 29-12 in the series. They’ve now upped their record to 43-31 on the season and are in the thick of the playoff race. The IBI's Kyle Ferrara recaps the week that was for the Crushers...

Middendorf is big in size and working hard with Crushers
Dave Middendorf is so big that he has to sleep on the floor of the bus if he wants to rest comfortably. Well, he doesn’t have to anymore, but it worked so well for him when he was a rookie in affiliated ball that he’s just stuck with it. The IBI's Kyle Ferrara recently caught up with the Crushers' starting pitcher to see how his season is going.

Rein leads crushers in 5-1 win
The Crushers ordered the Matt Rein special on Thursday night. At least, that's what it would be called if it were a menu item, and the Crushers could theoretically order results of games as if they were menu options. Rein pitched seven innings and earned the win as the Crushers (40-31) took the rubber match by beating the Freedom (39-32) 5-1.

Crushers, Freedom split doubleheader
Using the buddy system to score runs, the Crushers (39-31) scored twice in four different innings in game one of Wednesday's doubleheader. That amounted to an 8-2 blowout of the Freedom (39-32), who entered play just a half game behind the Crushers for third place in the East. The two teams went on to split the two games.

Crushing the Numbers: 7/30/13 to 8/5/2013
It may have been a short week, but it was a successful one for the Crushers. Because of a rain out of their game against the WildThings on Friday night, the Crushers only played five games in seven days. They were a perfect 5-0. The Crushers have been carried by their sound pitching and defense so far in the second half, and that’s the way this team was built to succeed. The IBI's Kyle Ferrara shares the details of the week that was in his latest notebook...

Crushers sweep Traverse City with 4-3 win
For just the third time this season, Lake Erie swept an opponent, but none bigger than a sweep of first place Traverse City completed Monday night in Avon. Coming out on top for a 4-3 win over the Beach Bums, the Crushers have turned the entire East division around in just one week.
