Ryan Selmer, Taylor Bloom and Jared Price struck out 10 Spiders and allowed only one hit and one walk over their 5.1 innings of relief. Selmer (1-0) earned the win after stranding five Richmond baserunners.

Maryland trailed 3-1 in the third when left fielder Tim Lewis and freshman first baseman Kevin Biondic delivered run-scoring extra base hits to tie the game. The go-ahead run scored in the fourth run when Richmond SS Tyler Beckwith couldn’t handle a Kevin Martir chopper, allowing Kevin Smith to score the unearned Terrapin run.

Maryland added a three spot in the seventh inning to put the game away, highlighted by a Jose Cuas RBI single and a Tim Lewis RBI double.

All in all, Lewis finished with a pair of RBI doubles. Cuas had three hits and an RBI while Biondic chipped in with a double, triple, run and two RBIs. Brandon Lowe also had two hits.

Maryland will be in action again Friday afternoon as the Terps (9-4) take on Princeton (1-6) beginning at 3:40pm right here on MBN.
