A 6-2, 195-pound right-hander from Santa Ysabel, California, Sulser provided another dominant performance in an outstanding season, shutting out Harvard on the road on just two hits while striking out eight without walking a batter. The right-hander retired the first 11 batters of the seven-inning game, and both hits came with two outs and nobody on base. Sulser needed just 67 pitches to navigate his way through the Crimson lineup, facing two over the minimum in the 3-0 victory.
Sulser improved to 6-1 on the season in his seven starts and finished the season with 52 strikeouts and just five walks in 45.0 innings while opponents hit a league-low .201 against him. He ranks among the top 10 qualified Division I pitchers in five statistical categories — strikeout-to-walk ratio (10.40, 2nd), WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched — 0.80, 4th), complete games (4, 6th), ERA (1.40, 10th) and walks issued per nine innings (1.00, 10th).
In addition, Sulser's 10.40 strikeout per nine innings is second among Ivy League pitchers, and in conference play, he led the Ancient Eight with four victories, a 1.91 ERA and a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 8.50.
Sulser is the third pitcher in Big Green history to win the weekly pitching award three or more times in a season, joining current Chicago Cub Kyle Hendricks '12 (three times in 2011) and Conor Brooks '00 (four times in 2000).
Dartmouth finished the season with a 22-17-1 record and 11-9 mark in the Ivy League to place second in the Rolfe Division, ending a string of nine straight seasons in which they either won the division title outright or tied for the lead.
