Greensboro, NC – In their last season in the ACC Tournament, the Maryland Terrapins may be in their best position to win it. They are 2-0 in the tournament after defeating Florida State on Friday, 5-3, at NewBridge Bank Park.

Freshman Mike Shawaryn wasn’t able to earn his 10th win, but he helped his team to its 36th. The Terps are now 36-19 as Shawaryn pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out six and allowing only two hits.

“That was probably as good of an outing as Mike Shawaryn has had throughout the whole year,” said head coach John Szefc after the game. The freshman carried a no-hitter into the fifth and retired the first 14 batters he faced.

Kevin Mooney got the win in relief by throwing two scoreless innings to close out the Seminoles after the Terps yielded three in middle relief.

Offensively, Maryland was led by two hits and three RBIs from third baseman Jose Cuas.

The Terps play UNC Saturday, but regardless of outcome will play for the ACC title at 1 PM on Sunday. Maryland has never won an ACC tournament title, dating back to its inception in 1973.
