The middle game of a three game series between the Maryland Terrapins and the Indiana Hoosiers did not end well for the Terps, who fell 13-2 on Saturday.
Maryland cycled through five pitchers and 13 different Terps scattered across the other positions throughout the course of the game. Robert Galligan (2-3) got the start and was ultimately assigned the loss. He saw the Hoosiers score two runs in both the first and second innings, and gave up a solo homer to Indiana’s Isaiah Pasteur before leaving the game in the fifth.
The Terps committed two errors on the defensive end and were only able to muster up six hits on the game. The Hoosiers lit up the Terps’ pitchers, dropping 14 hits and batting around the order in their breakout, seven-run eighth inning, which included a bases-clearing hit from Casey Rodrigue (4 RBIs on the day).
Kevin Martir led the Terps at the plate, batting 2 for 4 and driving in one of the Terps’ runs. Jamal Wade had the other RBI off a pinch-hit solo homer in the seventh. Kevin Smith went 1-4 batting as the DH in the two spot while Jose Cuas went hitless in four at-bats. Patrick Hisle got the start at shortstop.
The Terps close out their series with Indiana and celebrate Senior Day on Sunday at 11 a.m. in College Park.
