Crowe (0-2) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Giants after giving up three runs on six hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings. Crowe has recorded a season-high five strikeouts in each of his last two contests. He owns a 4.35 ERA and 17:10 K:BB across 20.2 innings to date.
Crowe allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision. The 26-year-old surrendered a run on a bases-loaded hit by pitch during the first inning and a second run on a sacrifice fly during the fourth as he held the Cubs without an extra-base hit. Crowe tentatively lines up for another start Thursday against the Giants, though he could shift to the bullpen if Chad Kuhl (shoulder) is cleared to return from the injured list.
Crowe (0-1) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two in five innings to take the loss against the Cardinals on Sunday. Crowe was sharp in his first start of the season April 25 but had to settle for a no-decision. The right-hander was relatively effective again Sunday, but he gave up a three-run homer in the second inning. Crowe was unable to get any run support from the Pirates and was charged with his first loss of the year. He's now posted a 4.66 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 9.2 innings across three appearances (two starts) in 2021. Crowe tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against the Cubs on Saturday.
Crowe allowed one run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Sunday. Crowe was effective in his first start of the season. Byron Buxton's RBI single in the first inning accounted for the only run on Crowe's line. The 26-year-old right-hander has given up two runs on five hits and four walks over 4.2 innings this season. He's added five strikeouts. The Pirates have days off Monday and Thursday, so they won't need a fifth starter for a while. As such, Crowe could end up in the bullpen after his spot start Sunday.
Crowe will be called up to start Sunday's game against the Twins. Crowe made a single brief relief appearance early this season before being sent to the minors. Combined with his three short starts from last year, he's now thrown nine major-league innings, giving up 12 earned runs on 15 hits and 10 walks.
