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.

How Sweep It Is! Maryland Baseball Defeats Notre Dame

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.
