Baseball Falls to West Virginia
Terps manage just six hits in a loss.
April 29, 1998
MORGANTOWN, W. Va.- The West Virginia University baseball team ran its record to 33-11-1 with an 11-2 win over Maryland Tuesday afternoon at Hawley Field.
Junior lefthander Louie Ross limited the Terrapins to just six hits and two runs in registering his first complete-game win as a Mountaineer. Ross fanned a career-high 11 and walked just two to improve his record to 5-2.
Eddie Weightman went 4-for-5 with two doubles and his seventh home run of the year in West Virginia's four-fifth. Weightman drove in a career high six runs. Jamie Hammond added three hits and Lance Williams, Kevin Olkowski, and Jim Kavourias each collected two hits for the Moutaineers, which battered Terrapin pitchers for 16 hits.
Weightman got the start in right field, with Abe Barker moving to center and Lance Williams in left replacing WVU's top hitter Joe McNamee, who sat out the contest with a sprained knee suffered at Gorgetown. McNamee, who visited WVU team doctors today, is questionable the rest of the week.
Maryland's Jason Mohap ruined Ross' bid for a shutout with a two-run homer to left center with one out in the ninth. Maryland falls to 21-25-1 on the season.
