Things are changing.
Tomo Delp hit a three-run homer in the first inning, David Carroll allowed just one run in six innings and the Maryland Terrapins beat No. 6 Texas in game one of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon. Carroll, a junior-college transfer from Western Nevada, was stellar in his Maryland debut. The 6-foot-8 righty attacked the strike zone throughout, issuing just one walk while striking out four and relying on his defense to make plays. Delp stepped to the plate with two on and no outs in the first inning and hit the first pitch he saw deep to left field. The ball sailed over the left-field pole but it was ruled foul. After taking two balls, Delp again went deep – this time to left-center – and over the outstretched arm of Texas left fielder Jonathan Walsh for a 3-0 lead.
The sixth-ranked Texas Longhorns scored five runs in the eighth inning to overcome a 4-2 deficit and beat the Maryland Terrapins Saturday in the second game of a doubleheader. Maryland (1-2) built an early lead on the strength of a splendid effort by starting pitcher Eric Potter, who gave up just one run on four hits in six innings, and a balanced offensive attack. The Terps led 4-1 when Potter departed the game, but Texas (2-1) scored one run in the seventh and five in the eighth to take the lead.
Terps were robbed of 2nd game when umps called obstruction against the terps, gave a Texas batter a 3 ball walk, and squeezed the Terps pitchers during the Texas rally. Terps outplayed Texas in both games. A new day is coming for Terps baseball with coach Bakich at the helm.
