COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The Maryland baseball team dropped a 7-3 decision to Bryant Friday night.
The Terrapins (7-6) fell behind early and could not get their offense in gear against a strong Bryant pitching performance. Senior right-hander Taylor Bloom tossed five and two thirds of an inning in the loss.
Bryant took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the third before the Terps scratched across a run. Freshman Tommy Gardiner started the threat with a walk before Justin Morris singled. Zach Jancarski bunted the pair over before Gardiner came in to score on a Nick Dunn groundout.
Bryant added another run in the seventh before the Terps responded again. AJ Lee and Gardiner walked before executing a double steal to put runners on second and third. After Morris walked, Lee scored on a wild pitch. Jancarski then walked to reload the bases. Gardiner came in to score on a balk to give the Terps their third run, but Dunn popped out to end the threat.
Bryant added a pair of insurance runs in the final inning to seal the game.
Maryland returns to action Saturday against Bryant at 2 p.m. Fans can listen to the game live on the Maryland Baseball Network.
