Indiana finishes sweep of No. 23 Maryland

  The Hoosiers plated five of their six runs in the third inning on Sunday.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Indiana swept its third series of the season, using a 6-2 victory on Sunday at Bob "Turtle" Smith to take its third game in as many tries at No. 23 Maryland, which hadn't suffered a sweep all season.

The Hoosiers retired Maryland in order five times and limited the Terrapins to six total base runners.

Indiana didn't score in the first inning as it had in the series' first two games, but still scored first, posting its second-best inning of the weekend with five runs in the top of the third.

Casey Rodrigue doubled and Nick Ramos singled with one out to place runners on the corners. Brad Hartong's groundout scored the Hoosiers' first run but left IU with two outs.

UM intentionally walked Scott Donley, but hit Logan Sowers to load the bases. Back-to-back walks of Craig Dedelow and Will Nolden gift-wrapped a pair of runs for IU as the Hoosiers opened up a 3-0 lead. Hoosier batters were walked 11 times and hit by pitch three times for a combined 14 total free bases.

Austin Cangelosi nearly cleared the bases with a double to left field but a throw home just beat out Nolden at home. IU scored two runs on the play to lead 5-0.

Maryland scored its first run of the game in the bottom of the same frame on a solo home run.

IU would add a run in the fifth on an RBI single from Nolden for a 6-1 lead the Hoosiers held until the bottom of the eighth, the only other time the home team would threaten.

Isaiah Pasteur's two-out error allowed a UM runner to reach and the ensuing RBI single shrunk IU's lead to 6-2.
