Maryland baseball is not done yet, fighting off elimination Sunday afternoon and rolling into a regional final and rematch vs. UConn. It took a late comeback to make it happen, including a big 8th-inning rally.

Through 6 innings against Wake Forest, the Terps were trailing 5-2. Maryland forced a run across in the 7th to make it 5-3 but the fireworks really came in the 8th.

After a pair of groundouts to open the inning, a walk by Ian Petrutz put the Terrapins in business with 2 outs. That set the table for Bobby Zmarzlak, and he delivered with a game-tying 2-run home run.

Maryland was not done yet with another walk – this time by Kevin Keister – setting things up for the top of the order. Luke Shliger broke the tie with a go-ahead double while Chris Alleyne followed with a 2-run home run of his own.

By the time the inning was done, the Terps had pushed across 6 runs on 4 hits with a pair of 2-run home runs for the lead. Petrutz would add on an insurance run in the 9th to make it 10-5, but that was more than enough cushion to finish it off.

On the mound, David Falco was nails out of the bullpen. He delivered 3.1 scoreless innings to hold the Demon Deacons in check and allow Maryland to climb back into the game. Falco allowed 3 hits without a walk and struck out 7 in 12 batters faced.

Maryland now advances to a Sunday evening rematch vs. UConn. A win by the Terps would set up a winner-take-all scenario on Monday while a loss will send Maryland home early.
