Indiana finished off their sweep of No. 20 Maryland this weekend, topping it off with a 6-2 win Sunday afternoon at Shipley Field in College Park.
The Hoosiers spoiled the Terps’ Senior Day ceremony with their third road win as many days. They took advantage of Jake Drossner’s control issues in the third inning, capitalizing with a five run inning. The junior lefty walked four while allowing five runs in two and two-thirds innings.
Control was an issue all day for the Terps’ pitching staff, as they walked eleven Hoosiers on the day.
The bright spots for Maryland came at the top of the order, where Brandon Lowe went 2-for-3 with a double, RBI and walk. Kevin Smith, batting in the leadoff spot for the first team all year, crushed a solo home run over the left field scoreboard as well.
The loss brings Maryland to 32-16 on the year and drops them out of the top 40 in RPI. Despite their consistent ranking in the low 20s nationally, the sweep will likely place the Terrapins squarely on the bubble for the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
They will take on Towson Wednesday night at 6:30pm in Aberdeen, Maryland.
