Maryland baseball made the NCAA tournament for the first time in 43 years on Monday. After coming in second in the ACC Tournament, the Terps will head to Columbia, SC.
Maryland earned the second seed in the Columbia regional, and they will take on Old Dominion in their first game on Friday. South Carolina, the host, and Campbell are also in the regional. If the Terps can advance, they will face the winner of the Charlottesville regional, which consists of Virginia, Arkansas, Liberty, and Bucknell, in the Super Regionals.
In the regional, the goal is to avoid double elimination. When a team loses their second game, they are eliminated from the regional. The last team standing advances to the Super Regionals, which is a best two out of three series.
I will have more on Maryland’s opponents and chances later this week.
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.
