Shocking the Country: Maryland Blows Out South Carolina to Advance to Supers

Silence. That was the sound at Carolina Stadium all night. Jake Drossner and Tayler Stiles made South Carolina hitters look foolish early, Maryland hitters got big hits all night, and the Terps advanced to the Super Regionals in one of college baseball’s rowdiest venues on Sunday night. After handing South Carolina their first postseason loss in Columbia since 2002 on Saturday, the Terps beat the Gamecocks by a final of 10-1.

South Carolina scored first on the night, as they got to Jake Drossner in the bottom of the first on a Marcus Mooney RBI double. After that, it was all Maryland. South Carolina started their closer Joel Seddon on the mound, and he gave the Gamecocks a gutsy effort, but it was not enough. In the top of the fourth, Blake Schmit gave the Terps a lead with a 2-run single to score Charlie White and LaMonte Wade.

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

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.
