If there were a mercy rule in college baseball, Saturday’s so-called “game” would have been called by the fifth inning. The Maryland Terrapins – as well as their home students and fans – were not so fortunate, and were made to suffer one of the most embarrassing days in the history of the baseball program – a 20-5 shellacking at the hands of the Indiana Hoosiers.
Though the Creighton Blue Jays seemingly did their very best to try and throw the game away in the bottom of the ninth, it wasn’t enough for the Maryland Terrapins to snap their home losing streak. With their nail-biting 8-6 win Sunday afternoon at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium, Creighton completed a weekend sweep of the Terrapins, whose once-promising season has hit a serious snag with their sixth loss in eight games – all coming at home.

Two days removed from suffering a demoralizing no-hitter at the hands of East Carolina, the Maryland Terrapins’ bats finally came to life Tuesday afternoon.

In total, Elon used seven pitchers during the game, but not one had an answer for either Caleb Walls or A.J. Lee, who both put on career performances against the Phoenix.
The Terps are headed to Jacksonville as a 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
