Eric Potter and David Carroll Lead Terrapins to Doubleheader Sweep of Canisius

Saturday Morning Kharma worked for Erik Bakich today , as he appeared on The Sports Maven Saturday morning

.Eric Potter took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, adding to a dominant start to his senior season, and helping Maryland sweep a doubleheader with a 9-1 win over Canisius Saturday afternoon. Maryland is off to a 7-4 start thanks in large part to its pitching, with Potter and David Carrollat the forefront. Carroll led Maryland to a victory in game one Saturday, going seven innings and allowing two earned runs. Potter (2-0) was even better, striking out six and allowing just one hit. The senior left-hander has allowed just two earned runs in three starts spanning 20 1/3 innings and lowered his ERA to 0.89. He has put together back-to-back seven-inning outings after allowing one run in six innings in his first start of the year at No. 6 Texas. Combined, Potter and Carroll have pitched into at least the seventh inning in all six of their starts.

“The key is their consistent ability to get us into the seventh or eighth inning of every start,” said head coach Erik Bakich. “It’s huge because it’s a bullpen saver; especially in a doubleheader like today where you think you might have to use a lot of pitchers and they each go long into the game, it’s just invaluable. When they do that we can strategize with who we bring out of the bullpen and it certainly helps us create some momentum offensively too.”
