PALO ALTO, Calif - Sophomore Lindsey Schmeiser went 3-for-6 with two runs scores and junior Shannon Bustillos was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs as the Maryland softball team fell to No. 2 Washington and Long Beach State Thursday at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic. 

The Terrapins return to action tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET with a bout against No. 13 Stanford. 

Game 1 - #2 Washington 11, Maryland 0

The Terrapin offense was held scoreless by undefeated Washington, 11-0, in their opening game at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic. 

The Huskies jumped on Maryland from the outset with a trio of runs to take the early 3-0 advantage. The Terps responded by loading the bases in the bottom of the frame with a two out rally, but Washington managed to force a Kylie Datil popout. 

After tacking on another run in the second, Washington pulled away with four runs in the third and three in the fourth to take a commanding 11-0 lead.

Maryland's comeback efforts were to no avail as it would never do better than its bases loaded first inning. 

Game 2 - Long Beach State 11, Maryland 5

The Maryland softball team overcame a 4-1 deficit to take a 5-4 lead, but Long Beach State rallied to win the second game of the day, 11-5. 

L. Schmeiser, Bustillos and Datil combined for six hits, five RBIs and three runs in the effort. 

After taking an early 1-0 lead following a fielding error by the Terps, LBSU doubled its lead in the fourth with a solo home run. 

The freshman Datil cut Maryland's deficit in half, 2-1, with a clutch single in the bottom of the fourth. The 49ers answered right back in the following inning, however, plating two runs to take a 4-1 advantage. 

Maryland fired back with its strongest inning of the day, as L. Schmeiser and Bustillos teamed up for back-to-back doubles. Datil then delivered again with a bloop single to score Bustillos and give the Terps a 5-4 lead. 

The 49er offense doused the Terrapin rally, however, as it scored seven runs over the final three innings to secure the 11-5 win. 

Junior Kaitlyn Schmeiser had a strong outing in the circle, striking out four batters and allowing three earned runs in five innings of work.
