Terps Baseball Falls to Purdue in Series Opener

By Gill Vesely

After mustering just one run, the Maryland Terrapins baseball team was left unable to top the Purdue Boilermakers, who posted seven runs, Friday in College Park.

Purdue maintained a steady offense throughout the game, scoring in five different innings including a three-run third. James Jewell and Brett Carlson each finished with two runs batted in for Purdue. Jewell also led the Boilermakers with three hits in four plate appearances.

Terps pitcher Brian Shaffer picked up the loss, dropping him to 4-3 on the season. He was pulled after just three and one third innings pitched after giving up seven hits and five runs.

Marty Costes went 2-for-4 from the plate for Maryland. Teammates Madison Nickens, Kevin Smith, Nick Cieri, Kevin Biondic and Anthony Papio also had hits, but the Terps couldn’t seem to string together their offense, leaving eight men on base.
