Reduce Overflowing in Fruit Pies

When I bake fruit filled pies such as Blueberry, after adding the top crust as well as cutting slits in the top crust, I take a piece of tube type pasta and insert it in the center of my pie crust. This will let the steam out and keep the filling in the pie.,

I do this but also add a thin layer of coarse chrushed cornflakes to the bottom crust before adding the filling. This helps the bottom by cutting the sogginess.
