Charlottesville, VA – “First-time” is increasingly becoming a meaningless distinction for the Maryland Terrapins baseball team as they continue to play in the postseason like they’ve been there many times before.
The Terps beat the Virginia Cavaliers, 5-4, in Charlottesville on Saturday to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three Super Regional. It was their first-ever appearance in a Super Regional game.
Jake Stinnett (8-6) got the win by pitching six strong innings before yielding the mound to Bobby Ruse followed by Kevin Mooney to close. Charlie White again paced the Terps by lacing three hits and making a diving catch in centerfield before throwing to his cut-off man to cut down the tagging Virginia (47-14) runner at home.
The two teams will resume action tomorrow at noon and Maryland (40-21) will send Freshman All-American Mike Shawaryn (11-3) to the hill. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN2.
