The Westfield, Indiana native finished third in the South Division's Relief Pitcher Point Standings with 35 points and closed out the year with a 3-4 record, a 4.82 ERA, and 40 strikeouts in 52.1 innings pitched.
In 2011 for Butler, Kramp saw action in 12 games, finishing with a 2-3 record and a 10.12 ERA. A 45th round draft pick in 2009 by the San Francisco Giants, Kramp struck out 24 batters in 32 innings pitched for the Bulldogs.
