The 29-year-old made six starts last month, going 4-1 with a tiny 1.90 ERA. In 42.2 innings, he also racked up 39 strikeouts.

On the season, Rusch leads in the league with a 2.29 ERA and has a 5-1 record in nine starts. He also leads the league with 52 strikeouts.

The Goldeyes return to Shaw Park tonight where they host the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in a four-game series before welcoming the Sioux Falls Pheasants.
