The Maryland Terrapins’ 2019 season lives another day. Thanks to yet another quality start from Hunter Parsons and two key eighth-inning home runs, the Terrapins stormed to a 6-2 upset win Wednesday over the Illinois Fighting Illini in the first round of the Big Ten Baseball Tournament.
For one night, Maryland’s lineup showed the offensive firepower that had been missing for much of the season. In their 8-4 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes Friday night, the Terrapins exploded for three home runs, more than enough to take their third straight victory and give them an edge in the battle for the final Big Ten Tournament spot.
Despite their best efforts to seemingly do otherwise, the Maryland Terrapins managed to win their series opener Thursday night against the Iowa Hawkeyes, 8-6, thanks to a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth by shortstop A.J. Lee.
Maryland’s hopes of reaching the 2019 Big Ten Baseball Tournament took another blow after they dropped the rubber match of their series to Minnesota, 2-1, at Siebert Field Sunday afternoon.
Maryland’s chances of making the Big Ten Baseball Tournament took a severe blow Saturday night. Despite a decent performance from Zach Thompson, the Terps’ batting lineup did not make an impact until it was too late, letting Minnesota come away with a 9-3 win in the second game of their three-game series.
Maryland baseball’s run of good play against Big Ten foes has come to a halt in their series against Michigan. Thanks to a disastrous fifth inning where Michigan put up four runs on Maryland despite the benefit of only one base hit, Maryland dropped their second in a row to the conference-leading Wolverines, 10-4.
The Maryland Terrapins are officially back above the .500 mark for the first time since April 13th. Their four-game road trip through the Keystone State ended in victory, with a 5-2 win over the Villanova Wildcats at Plymouth Meeting.
