Maryland overcame a one-run deficit with two runs in the sixth and rode the superb performance of starter Jake Stinnett to a 4-1 win over Duke on Sunday at Jack Coombs Field. With the victory, the Terps (25-21, 8-16 ACC) took two of three from the Blue Devils (25-22, 9-15 ACC) to secure a vital series win.
Stinnett was the star of Sunday’s game. The junior righty held the Blue Devils to no earned runs on five hits with four strikeouts for his first career complete game. Stinnett has gone at least seven innings in four of his last five starts including his past three. In those contests, Stinnett has an ERA of 1.54 with 28 strikeouts.
Jordan Hagel and LaMonte Wade had the decisive at-bats on Sunday. After Duke took a 1-0 lead in the fifth, the Terps took the lead in the next half inning. Hagel drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly to center and Wade singled to center to score Charlie White all the way from first.
