GREENWOOD, Ind. – Following a dominant outing in the Grizzlies' home opener against Albion this past Friday (Mar. 2), senior pitcher Christian Sullivan has been tabbed as the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Pitcher of the Week for the third time in his career.

Sullivan was brilliant for the Grizzlies in their 5-1 win over the Britons, tossing seven innings of scoreless ball. The Schererville, Ind.-native scattered six hits, walked one and struck out eight Albion batters, recording six batters on called third strikes. Sullivan needed just 94 pitches to get through his start, improving to 2-0 on the year.

The senior hurler has a miniscule 0.69 earned run average in two starts for the 5-0 Grizzlies. Sullivan has allowed just one run over two starts while racking up 13 punch-outs in 13 innings of work.
