Maryland got on the board first, plating seven runs in the bottom of the second inning. The Terps recorded a three-run double, two RBI singles, and a two-run home run to the right field. Although the Panthers got two runs back in the top of the fourth, they could never overtake Maryland’s early lead.

Head coach Matt Swope spoke on the impressive second-inning offensive performance after the game.

“Just a huge second inning from the guys.” I thought their guy had good stuff, his ball had a lot of run. We were just able to build a big inning, punch through, and I have to give the guys credit. The guys were just relentless in that second inning. We had a little lull in the middle of the game, but we were able to add on late and tack on at the end. It was a really big win for the guys against an ACC opponent.”
