Tomo Delp drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 13th inning and Maryland walked off with a 7-6 win over Army Friday night at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium.
Maryland (3-3) rallied from a two-run deficit to tie the game at 6-6 in the bottom of the eighth thanks to a Jack Cleary single that scored Jake Stinnett and Ryan Holland. After four scoreless innings, Cleary led off the 13th and was hit by a pitch, Alfredo Rodriguez reached base on a throwing error by Army pitcher Ken Jackson and Korey Wacker drew a walk to load the bases. Delp then stepped to the plate and took a 3-1 pitch low and inside to give the Terps the win.
In a game that lasted nearly five hours and featured a combined 27 walks and hit batsmen between the two teams, it was a fitting end. Delp was 2-for-4 with three walks in the game while Cleary had his second straight two-hit game.
Center fielder/pitcher Korey Wacker (1-0) threw four innings in relief and surrendered just one hit to earn the win. Maryland starter Sander Beck, who struck out a career-high 11, left with a 4-3 lead after six innings, but didn’t factor into the decision.
