In Darton’s 4-0 win over No. 11 Gulf Coast State (Fla.), Sunstrom delivered eight shutout innigns for the Cavaliers. The sophomore gave up only four hits and struck out four batters, earning his fourth win of 2013. Sunstrom, a McDonough native, has been the Cavaliers’ workhorse this season, showcasing a 2.66 ERA in a team-high 40.2 innings pitched.

“I developed a change-up in the off season… and the coaches prepare us so well, it just kind of worked out,” Sunstrom said.

Darton head baseball coach Scot Hemmings said that AJ is 13-2 in his two seasons with the program, and keeps getting better.

“He’s been wonderful for the program,” Hemmings said. “He’s kind of an over-achiever.”

Sunstrom recently committed to West Georgia College in Carrollton, where he plans to transfer this fall.
