EL Pitcher of the Week
Eastern League: David Maust, Harrisburg 2 G(2GS) 1 CG 1-0 1.20ERA 15IP, 12H, 3R(2ER) 1BB, 17K Back in Harrisburg for a third consecutive season, David Maust seems to have the Eastern League figured out lately. After going a combined 6-14 over his past two campaigns with the Senators, the 26-year-old southpaw turned in two more outstanding efforts last week, picking up a win to raise his record to 5-3, while allowing just two earned runs in 15 innings to lower his ERA to 2.13. On Monday, Maust set a career high with 10 strikeouts over six innings against Binghamton. Then, 11 days after tossing his first career nine-inning complete game, he threw another one, allowing just one unearned run on four hits while striking out seven in a 6-1 win over Erie. The West Virginia native is 3-1 with a 1.00 ERA in his last five starts, striking out 43 while walking just three.
