Georgia Tech defeats Maryland in ACC Championship Game

A spectacular run for Maryland baseball ended with a 9-4 loss to Georgia Tech in the ACC championship game on Sunday afternoon. The Yellow Jackets scratched out a few key hits at crucial times to win their ninth ACC title.

Georgia Tech jumped out to a quick lead off Maryland starter Jake Drossner. After Drossner recorded two quick outs, a single, a double off the wall, and another single put the Yellow Jackets ahead 2-0 before the Terps even came to the plate. However, Drossner then settled down, and Blake Schmit helped his pitcher out. He led off the second inning with a solo homer to cut the lead in half. After Georgia Tech scored in the third, Anthony Papio answered in the fourth with an RBI single. This cut the Tech lead to 3-2. Drossner exited after 5 solid innings. The sophomore pitched well on the big stage, and he will most likely have to start a game in the NCAA Tournament. Read more about Georgia Tech defeats Maryland in ACC Championship Game

Survive and Advance: Terps Beat Cornell in Thriller

The NCAA Tournament is the most exciting time of the year in any collegiate sport. Maryland and Cornell showed why on Saturday afternoon, as the Terps scored with 2 seconds left to defeat the Big Red 8-7.

Mike Chanenchuk scored Maryland’s first goal in the middle of the second quarter, but that is all the Terps could get in the first half. Christian Knight (Boys’ Latin) was outstanding in goal for the Big Red. They took a 5-1 lead into halftime. Read more about Survive and Advance: Terps Beat Cornell in Thriller

How Sweep It Is! Maryland Baseball Defeats Notre Dame

Maryland Baseball pulled off a huge sweep this weekend in their final ACC home games. Maryland’s pitching staff shut down Notre Dame as the Terps won three huge games.

On Friday night, Jake Stinnett twirled a complete game shutout in the final home start of his career. Stinnett struck out 13 Notre Dame hitters. This was Stinnett’s fourth complete game of the year, and his second in ACC play. Maryland’s offense was quiet again, but Jose Cuas’s 2-RBI single was all Stinnett needed.

Making the Case for Jake Stinnett

When it comes to Major League Baseball’s draft, it is typically very tough to guess which teams will select which players. Many factors come into play: some teams prefer high school players over college players, some will draft pitcher-heavy, and others will look to take local players. There are several top prospects, and one of them is Maryland righty Jake Stinnett.

A tough week for Maryland Baseball

Maryland_terrapins_logoIt has been a rough week for the University of Maryland baseball team. After last week’s loss to West Virginia, the Terps managed to bounce back with a win over a solid George Mason team. However, Maryland could not carry any momentum into the weekend, as they were swept by Boston College. The Eagles were near the bottom of the ACC before this weekend. Today, Maryland lost to James Madison.

The Terps did get some good starts over the weekend. Jake Stinnett, the team’s ace, struck out ten hitters on Friday, but Maryland couldn’t generate any offense in a 5-1 loss. On Sunday, sophomore Jake Drossner, who has been a pleasant surprise for the ballclub, turned in another good outing. Drossner only allowed four hits, but the Terps once again failed to find any offense in a 5-2 loss.

Maryland Baseball Falls to WVU

It was a rough night for the Maryland Terrapin’s baseball team in Morgantown, as they fell to West Virginia 14-2. The loss puts Maryland at 24-15 on the year.

It was not the best night for Tayler Stiles. The freshman southpaw from Bowie gave up 7 runs in just 4 innings. This was only the second start for Stiles, but the Terps will need all of their pitchers to throw well if they want to make a run in the ACC Tournament and possibly in the NCAA Tournament.

Offensively, Maryland had seven hits, led by shortstop Blake Schmit, who had two. However, Maryland left eleven men on base. Some credit must be given to West Virginia pitching, but that will hurt any team on any night.
