Robinson pitches Terps past Towson in baseball, 11-3

Freshman left-hander Alex Robinson gave Maryland (26-21) seven strong innings and the offense scored in six of its eight turns at-bat in an 11-3 win over visiting Towson (21-22). Robinson surrendered only one run on six hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings, which tied a personal best. Robinson, who has received a no-decision in eight of his 11 starts, received plenty of offensive support Tuesday. The Terps scored at least one run from the second inning through the sixth. Leading 4-1 in the fifth, Maryland broke the game open on a bases-clearing double from Jose Cuas as the Terps plated four runs in the frame. The Terps scored the first run of the inning when Blake Schmit was hit with a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded. Cuas stepped in and with two outs lined a 2-2 pitch down the left-field line to score three. It was Cuas' fourth double of the season and increased his season RBI total to 16. Eight Terps recorded a hit in the victory, with Charlie White singling twice and adding a RBI. The sophomore also stole his ACC-leading 37th base of the season. White has 59 career stolen bases, tying him with Todd Nutter for the third-most all-time at Maryland. White is three shy of tying the career program mark.

Softball: North Carolina State sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman (Archbishop Spalding) was honored as the ACC Pitcher of the Week. Weiman set a school record for wins in a season (28) with four consecutive victories in the final week of the regular season.

Women's bowling: Three UMES bowlers competed last week in Buenos Aires in the Ibero-America, a competition among 14 countries that all originally had roots with Spain and Portugal. The event featured some of the best bowlers in Latin America. Senior Anggie Ramirez (Colombia) took first place in the all-event standings, winning gold in the singles, doubles and trios. Freshman All-American Kristie Lopez (Puerto Rico) took second in all events with a fifth in individuals, third in doubles and second in trios. Newly signed Hawk Juliana Franco (Colombia) teamed up with Ramirez to capture gold in doubles and trios; she took sixth in individuals to claim seventh place overall.
