Maryland’s offense continues its hot streak with a 10-7 win against Georgetown

The Terps’ bats were hot against Georgetown as they scored in each of the first five innings. The offense showed off the power and put up 10 runs including two doubles, a triple, and a home run. The plate discipline was also on display as they drew 10 walks. Maryland was able to pick up a 10-7 win in College Park on Tuesday at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium before heading back on the road this weekend.

Maryland struck in the first inning after an RBI triple from Matt Shaw, continuing his hot streak. Ian Petrutz was able to bring Shaw home on a single to extend the lead to 2-0.

Nate Haberthier got off to a strong start, striking out the first two batters he faced. The cracks started to show in the second for Haberthier as he allowed two hits and three walks. With the bases loaded and two outs, Keith Savoy hit a double to tie the game at 2-2.

Luke Shliger ripped an RBI double in the bottom of the second to take the lead back. Shliger got a break from his usual catching duties today but still started as designated hitter. He made a major impact from the DH spot, batting 1-2 with three walks and a double.

Logan Ott subbed in for Habertheir in the third and allowed a two-run homer to dead center, giving the Hoyas a 4-3 lead. The Maryland bullpen would be heavily relied on in this one as Ott, Andrew Johnson, David Falco Jr., Kenny Lippman and Ryan Van Buren all made appearances.

The back-and-forth scoring would be a theme in today’s game as the Terps were once again able to answer and take the lead back in the third. After three walks to load the bases, Eddie Hacopian hit a single to left field and two runs would score. The lead would swing to 5-4.

The Hoyas hit another home run to take the lead in the fourth, this time from Austin Kretzschmar. The three-run homer came with two outs and gave the Hoyas their biggest lead of the day with the score at 7-5. Matt Woods ended the half-inning by robbing Owen Carapellotti of a home run.

Woods made his presence felt again later in the fourth when he hit a run-scoring double to cut the Georgetown lead in half. Maryland continued the scoring in the fifth with a Nick Lorusso three-run blast. The Terps added an insurance run in the seventh to stretch the lead to 10-7.

Van Buren picked up the save, capping off a 10-7 Maryland win. Maryland jumps to 15-9 and extends its win streak to three games. The Terps will start their Big Ten play this weekend on the road against Iowa.
