After Nebraska swept the Maryland softball team last weekend, the Terps responded by winning three out of four games against Rutgers this past weekend. The teams split the Friday doubleheader with the Terps taking the second game, 5-0. Freshman infielder Michaela Jones drove in four of the team’s five runs with three of them coming via a homerun.

The Terps continued to dominate in the final two games of the series, winning by scores of 6-2 and 4-1 respectfully. In the team’s three wins, Maryland’s offense scored four runs in an inning allowing the Terps to jump out to early leads.

In the circle, the pitching staff struck out 18 Scarlet Knights including eight in the series finale Sunday.

The team will close out the regular season with a four-game series against Indiana in College Park starting on Friday, May 14.
