NEW YORK, N.Y. — While Dartmouth baseball head coach Bob Whalen earned his 400th career victory yesterday, number 401 turned out to be much sweeter as the Big Green (25-16) defeated Columbia (26-21) in the third and decisive game of the Ivy League Championship Series on Sunday afternoon, 11-5. Every Dartmouth hitter had at least one hit and scored at least one run to help the team win the conference title for the second straight year.
Freshman Kyle Hunter (2-0), who had six no-decisions this year (five of which Dartmouth won), earned the victory by hurling 5.2 innings while yielding four earned runs on seven hits and a walk, striking out six as well. Sophomore Cole Sulser shut the door on the Lions in relief of Hunter, tossing the final 3.1 innings and allowing just a solitary run in the ninth on a total of three hits while fanning five for his fourth save.
