Maryland softball completes comeback with improbable walk-off vs Penn State
Sometimes, things just go your way.
That’s exactly what happened for Maryland softball Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately for Penn State, things did not break that way for the Nittany Lions.
Heading into the bottom of the seventh of the final game of a weekend series, Penn State held a 4-2 lead. The Terrapins did not go quietly after getting two runners on base but with one out.
While a double play could have ended the game, Maryland went with a bunt to try and get the runners into scoring position. Jaeda McFarland put down a beautiful bunt, and it worked out even better than expected.
McFarland’s bunt was perfectly placed between the pitcher and third base. She likely would have been safe without a throw, but the throw by the Nittany Lions was hurried and wide, sailing past first base and into right field.
Before Penn State could recover, two runners scored and McFarland raced all the way around for the winning run. Check it out:
