Maryland baseball defeated West Virginia, 10-8, in a 12-inning fall exhibition at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium on Friday night.
According to the team’s Twitter account, the Terps had 11 hits and threw 19 strikeouts against the Mountaineers, who are coming off a 33-22 spring campaign.
Bryant transfer and fifth-year outfielder Matt Woods made his impact felt in his first competition at “The Bob.” Woods had a dominant spring for the Bulldogs, hitting .384 with a 1.093 OPS to take home Northeast Conference Player of the Year honors.
Junior shortstop Matt Shaw, who is coming off an incredible summer at the Cape Cod League where he was named the Perfect Game Summer Player of the Year, also reportedly drove in at least one RBI. Star pitchers in junior right hander Jason Savacool and senior righty Nick Dean made appearances on the bump to start Friday’s game.
The Terps will wrap up their fall slate this weekend with their annual Fall World Series, which consists of intra-squad scrimmages on Friday, Saturday and Monday.
