CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Maryland baseball takes the field Sunday seeking a two-game sweep of rival Virginia in the NCAA super regional, and the stakes of Sunday's game, the second of a best-of-three series, are simple. A win by Maryland ends Virginia's season and sends the Terps to their first ever College World Series. A win by Virginia forces a decisive third game Monday afternoon. It's safe to say the Terps are going to go for it today, with coach John Szefc saying it was all hands on deck for his pitching staff.

The Maryland baseball team's improbable NCAA tournament run ended in disappointment Monday when Virginia jumped to an early lead and never let up in an 11-2 drubbing in the deciding third game of the NCAA super regional. “There's only eight teams that can go to Omaha (Neb. for the College World Series), and I'd say these guys had about as special a season as they possibly could have had,” Maryland coach John Szefc said. “Unfortunately, we got matched up against an absolute monster in the super regional at their place.” That monster was a Virginia squad whose explosive offense threatened in Maryland's Game 1 win Saturday, broke out to take Game 2 Sunday, and never relented in a 13-hit barrage Monday that ended Maryland's season.

No. 1 Johns Hopkins allowed eight runs in both the second and fifth innings as its season came to an end with a 23-8 loss to No. 9 Cortland in a Division III College World Series elimination game in Grand Chute, Wis. The Red Dragons (38-9-1) pounded out 26 hits and benefited from three Blue Jays errors, all in the second inning. Chris Huisman (Archbishop Spalding), Brian Youchak and John Swarr all hit solo home runs in the sixth inning, setting a Division III College World Series team record for homers in an inning.

I am a college baseball junkie, and ESPN has given me all the coverage I can handle and then some the last three weeks. The incredible run by the University Maryland, my alma mater, has been icing on the cake and a cherry on top of that. But, honestly, I could watch the Anteaters from the University of California - Irvine beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys any night of the week. And I didn't miss one Texas Tech game streamed or on-air. I'll see them both in the College World Series from Omaha next weekend.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc has insisted ahead of the team's first NCAA Super Regional appearance Saturday in Virginia that his squad is comfortable and loose, despite having entered the year with no postseason experience. It certainly helps that his squad is traveling to the familiar Davenport Field, home of Atlantic Coast Conference rival Virginia. "It's kind of a cool way to leave the ACC, playing them one last time," said junior outfielder Charlie White, who was named the most outstanding player of last weekend's Columbia, S.C., regional.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.* It sounds like a heckuva movie to me, LSU's baseball team having to come out of the loser's bracket to win its conference (SEC) tournament, an NCAA regional qualifier and, finally, the College World Series. Besides, the Tigers had to rally from two down in the ninth inning in the semis. There's probably a descendant of Roy Hobbs on the team.* New York's sophisticated, supposedly all-knowing baseball fans would not have to endure miserable summers if they didn't believe all that noise about their teams emanating from spring training.

He leaned in at shortstop, flagging down grounders and line drives in what seemed like just another workout for tournament-bound Johns Hopkins earlier this week. But when a passing shower drove others to the dugout, Tim Rappazzo, 21, paused a moment, looked up and let the first drops of rain pelt his face. "That's the stuff you miss when you're sick," he said. "Being outside and feeling the sun on your skin ... getting dirty as you slide into second base ... or even having a ground ball go through your legs.

OMAHA, Neb. - Cal State Fullerton leaned on catcher Kurt Suzuki and pitcher Jason Windsor when times were tough, and there were many such occasions during this college baseball season. Naturally the Titans would need their two standouts in the most critical moments of Game 2 in the College World Series championship finals against top-ranked Texas yesterday. Suzuki got the winning hit in a decisive three-run rally in the seventh inning, and Windsor threw a complete game to give Fullerton a 3-2 victory for its fourth and perhaps most improbable NCAA championship.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- For most of their first-ever NCAA super regional, Maryland has fought off rallies by Virginia that, with every base runner, became more and more likely to produce a big inning. The Terps survived in Game 1 on Saturday, but they couldn't overcome Virginia's 17-hit barrage or the three-run seventh inning that broke open the Cavaliers' 7-3 win Sunday at a sold-out Davenport Field. “Good teams like Virginia will take those kind of base hits and turn them into good things,” Maryland coach John Szefc said.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Throughout its improbable postseason run, the Maryland baseball team has faced teams that have had the advantage of simply having played in big games before. To level the scales a bit Saturday, it decided to impose its own kind of game on Virginia. The upstart Terps strung together hits early in the game and held off several late rallies en route to a tense, 5-4 win in the first game of their best-of-three NCAA super regional. “That's a typical game that we've been playing lately,” coach John Szefc said.

COLUMBIA, S.C. --The Maryland baseball team did what a lot of people didn't think was possible and, in the process, it became a most unlikely squad to enjoy a dogpile in Carolina Stadium. The Terps won the Columbia, S.C., regional of the NCAA tournament with a 10-1 victory over top-seeded South Carolina on Sunday night and advanced to the super regionals for the first time in school history. It's going to be an all-Atlantic Coast Conference affair as Maryland will travel to Charlottesville, Va., next weekend to face Virginia.

A Louisiana newspaper is reporting that the Orioles' top pick, LSU right-hander Kevin Gausman, is "seriously considering" going back to school, but the club says it is still in negotiations with the fourth overall selection of the 2012 draft. The Times-Picayune newspaper initially reported online Monday night that Gausman "will be" going back to LSU, while citing an unnamed source with "knowledge of the situation. " The site later changed the wording to say the pitcher is "seriously considering" a return to campus while removing the unnamed source from the story.

The team was paced by Manny Machado's first grand slam, but the offensive outburst came without Nelson Cruz, who was hit with a pitch and suffered a bruised hand . - The obsession with Johan Santana continued Sunday , with news that the Orioles were trying to keep the same plan they announced last week for the injured lefty.
