Terps Beat Clemson in the rain 7-2

This game took as long as a Yankees-Red Sox game. It rained almost continuously through out the game and the field became a disaster area. In all truth it should have been suspended after six innings. I was fearful that a player would get seriously injured. So shame on the officiating crew for not stopping play.

The Terps came into this game 2-25 in their last nine series at Clemson. That's not a typo. We were Clemson's bitches, Until today when Jimmy Reed threw a gem, going 120 pitches and eight innings, many of them in a steady rain. Reed had only one mistake, a two run shot but otherwise he was very much in command. He set a personal high with 11 strikeouts. Conversely, the Clemson pitchers had a hard time throwing strikes even though the home plate ump had a very generous zone.

Kyle Convissar and Jordan Hagel both went deep, and I think we had something like 14 hits. Clemson was held to four hits. Charlie White swiped his 38th base, making his career total = 60, just two behind Larry Long and Alfredo Roriguez. By the end of the game he had more mud on him then one of the horses running in today's Derby.

Great to see Kyle Convissar back after suffering a concussion from an errant throw in a Virginia Tech. Including his home run he had three hits to go along witha (surprise!!!) hit by pitch.

Game 2 of the series is slated for tomorrow at 1PM. The final game of the series is on national television Monday evening.

Our RPI is now 23. Go Terps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
