COLLEGE PARK -- Ken Noe's grand slam and seven scoreless innings by four pitchers helped send the University of Maryland (28-25-1) past visiting James Madison (24-19) at Shipley Field yesterday, 11-6. It was the Terrapins' fifth consecutive win and ensured them of at least a .500 season.
Noe's hit came in the eighth inning and provided a cushion after James Madison had closed within 7-6 with three runs in the seventh. A single by Cary Dimmick and two walks preceded Noe's third home run of the year.
The Dukes scored three runs in each of the second and seventh innings, highlighting each with a two-run homer. Brian Morabito hit one in the second, and Dwight Rowe homered in the seventh.
