DURHAM, N.C. – Duke junior right-hander Marcus Stroman was named to the All-ACC First Team, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Monday.

Stroman was one of four starting pitchers to earn All-ACC First Team honors. He is the first Duke pitcher to be selected to the first team since Andrew Wolcott in 2009. Stroman is the sixth Blue Devil to earn All-ACC honors under head coach Sean McNally.

Stroman, a native of Medford, N.Y., led all NCAA pitchers in strikeouts with 136 and finished second in strikeouts per nine innings (12.49). Stroman went 6-5 with a 2.39 ERA in 14 starts this season.

Stroman ranked first in the ACC in innings pitched (98.0), fifth in ERA (2.39) and 10th in opponent batting average (.231). In ACC games only, Stroman finished first in innings pitched (76.0), first in strikeouts (99), first in strikeouts per nine innings (11.72) and 10th in ERA (2.49).

Stroman’s 136 strikeouts in 2012 are the fifth-most in a single season in Duke history. His 136 Ks compared to just 26 walks gave him a 5.23 strikeout-to-walk ratio on the year. In his 10 ACC starts, Stroman had 99 strikeouts against 18 walks.

Stroman’s 290 career strikeouts put him at fourth on Duke’s all-time strikeouts list.

Stroman finished the season with a 2.39 ERA, while his ERA in ACC games was 2.49. His 2.39 ERA is the sixth-lowest in a single season in the aluminum bat era (since 1974) in Duke history. Stroman’s 3.27 career ERA is the second-lowest in school history in the aluminum bat era and the sixth-lowest all-time.
