CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Right-hander Beau Sulser twirled seven shutout innings while striking out 10, and Dartmouth (3-1) made a first-ininng run stand up as the Big Green defeated the 17th-ranked Miami Hurricanes (3-5) on Friday night, 1-0.

Sulser (2-0) was in command throughout the night as just four Miami hitters reached base over his seven stanzas on two hits, a walk and a fielding error, only one of which advanced past first base. The senior from Santa Ysabel, California, needed just 95 pitches to get his 21 outs before yielding way to classmate Chris Burkholder, who threw two perfect innings for his second save of the young season.

Dartmouth got the only run of the night on the first two pitches of the game. Freshman Trevor Johnson ripped a lead-off double on the first offering from Jesse Lepore (1-2), and sophomore Matt Feinstein followed by taking a hack at the first pitch as well, dropping a two-bagger just out of the reach of the right fielder. After hesitating briefly while rounding third, Johnson raced home without a throw for the 1-0 lead.

That was all Sulser needed on this night as he zipped his 92-93 mph fastball past the Miami hitters while keeping them off balance with a mix of change-ups and sliders. In the bottom half of the first, he retired the side in order with a pair of punchouts. The lone big hit of the senior came leading off the second when Johnny Ruiz hit a long fly to left that got lodged in the fence for a ground-rule double. The hit didn’t faze Sulser, however, as he fanned the next batter on three pitches, induced a harmless tapper back to the mound, then got the third out looking at strike three, leaving Ruiz on third.

Lepore settled into a groove as well and gave up just two more hits and three walks after the first frame. He also got some help from his defense as two runners were thrown out trying to steal and another was erased on a double play. Dartmouth had two batters reach in the sixth, but Lepore got one of his six strikeouts to end one of the rare threats by either team.

Sulser, meanwhile, was even stingier. A Carl Chester single to start the fourth went nowhere when Sulser picked him off for the first out before inducing a pair of grounders to end the inning. In the sixth, Joe Gomez reached base on an error, but was immediately doubled off by senior catcher Adam Gauthier when he caught a sacrifice bunt that was popped up in front of the plate.

The only other Hurricane to reach was Ruiz with two outs in the seventh when he walked on a full-count pitch. Sulser did not fret and got the final out on strikes, giving him double-digit whiffs for the second time in his career. As he left the field, he received a warm welcome from his teammates as they knew his evening was over.

Burkholder came on to start the eighth and picked up right where Sulser left off, striking out two of the three batters as he set the side down in order. After another perfect inning, Burkholder had his fifth career save.

Feinstein had two of the five Big Green hits, his fourth multi-hit performance in as many games this season.

Dartmouth and Miami will resume their three-game series on Saturday night at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field at 7 p.m. Sophomore right-hander Cole O’Connor (0-0, 3.60) is slated to take the mound for the Big Green, while the Hurricanes will counter with left-hander Jeb Bargfeldt (1-1, 2.31). The game will be streamed live on ACC Network Live, which is available via with a cable or satellite subscription.

Notes: Dartmouth’s last victory over ranked team came three years ago when the Green nipped 18th-ranked Kansas in 10 innings, 3-2, on March 23, 2014 ... the Big Green are now 2-3 all-time against Miami with their other win coming back in 2000 ... the last time Dartmouth squared off against the Hurricanes was at the 2010 NCAA Regional in Coral Gables. Miami won that game, 12-8 ... the Big Green are 9-9 in 1-0 games under head coach Bob Whalen, now in his 28th season at the helm ... Sulser has not allowed an earned run in either of his first two starts ... Feinstein is hitting .550 (11-for-20) in the first four games.
