A 6-2, 195-pound right-hander from Santa Ysabel, California, Sulser was dominant in his start against the 17th-ranked Miami Hurricanes on Friday night. He matched a career high by tossing seven innings, holding the Hurricanes without a run on a mere two hits and a walk while striking out 10. No more than one batter reached base in any of those innings, and only one advanced past first base. Sulser struck out at least one batter in six of the seven stanzas and threw 95 pitches before giving way to senior Chris Burkholder, who twirled two perfect innings to save the 1-0 victory.
The Big Green went on to become the first team from outside one of the power-five conferences to win a series against Miami in eight years, shutting out the Hurricanes again in the series finale on Sunday, 5-0.
Dartmouth has had at least one pitcher earn this weekly award in each of the past 10 seasons now, though this is the first such honor for Sulser. His brother, Cole Sulser ’12, also earned the award once in his collegiate career, and currently is a member of the Cleveland Indians organization, reaching the Triple-A level last year.
Dartmouth (4-2) has 10 days off until it plays again due to winter exams. Next up for the Green is a four-game series at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, beginning Thursday, March 16 at 6 p.m.
