The Terps started early - scoring in the top of the first when leadoff hitter Charlie White scored on Jordan Hagel’s double. Maryland extended the lead to 2-0 in the top of the second on shortstop Blake Schmidt’s home run to left. The lead would be short lived as Madison scored two in the bottom of the second to tie things up. The Terrapins recaptured the lead in the top of the fourth and Schmidt was again the catalyst. He singled with one out and scored on catcher Jake Cleary’s double. Cleary was thrown out trying to take third on the throw to the plate. Once again, the Dukes bounced back tying the score in the bottom of the inning.
The Terps broke the game open in the top of the fifth scoring seven times. White walked to lead off the inning and scored on K.J. Hockaday’s single. Maryland eventually loaded the bases for freshman LaMonte Wade, Junior’s bases clearing triple. The Terps weren’t done as Wade scored on Matt Bosse’s double and later in the inning left fielder Mike Monteville doubled in Bosse and Schmidt who had reached base on a walk. Although Madison scored two in the bottom of the ninth, the seven run outburst was sufficient to give Maryland their first road win and fifth consecutive. The 5-3 Terps return home on Friday to kick off a four game weekend set against the Princeton Tigers.
