Maryland Edges Virginia 7-6 In ACC Baseball Tournament

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — LaMonte Wade hit two homers, and Jake Stinnett pitched eight innings as Maryland beat Virginia 7-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Wade’s two blasts Thursday were his first this year for the sixth-seeded Terrapins (35-19), while Kevin Martir hit a two-run shot in the seventh for a 6-4 lead.

Stinnett (7-6) had 10 strikeouts and threw 126 pitches, helping Maryland improve to 10-0 in May and set its season record for victories.

Nick Howard went 4-for-4 for third-seeded Virginia (43-12), while Joe McCarthy hit a two-run homer in the ninth to pull within a run. But reliever Kevin Mooney struck out John LaPrise with the tying run on first to end it.

Reliever David Rosenberger (1-1) took the loss, marking the first time Virginia has lost consecutive games all year.

Maryland plays No. 2 seed Florida State in Pool B on Friday, while Virginia plays seventh-seeded North Carolina.
