MM 10.24: Maryland baseball splits fall doubleheader with Virginia

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Maryland baseball played a pair of seven-inning fall games at Virginia Saturday, splitting the doubleheader.

The first game saw the the Terps ultimately come away with a 5-4 win, led by shortstop Matt Shaw, who paced the offense by going 4-for-4 with a fifth-inning RBI triple and a solo homer in the seventh. Shaw, who is coming off a summer that saw him earn Cape Cod League MVP honors, figures to be the centerpiece of Maryland’s team this spring and has been projected as a potential first-round MLB draft pick.

The Terps’ pitchers also shut the door on the Cavaliers, allowing just three hits. A team total of nine walks kept the base paths busy, but Virginia left 11 men on base. Denison transfer Kenny Lippman shut the door in the final inning and got the save.

The second game was one to forget for head coach Rob Vaughn’s squad, as the Cavaliers ran away with it, 18-0. Virginia put up 18 hits and took advantage of four Maryland errors, holding the Terps to just three hits of their own. UVA sophomore Colin Tuft led all players with six RBIs, hitting two doubles and a home run.

The Terps and Cavaliers project to be two of the nation’s top teams in the spring, and they will continue use their respective fall ball schedules as an opportunity to evaluate their teams.
