Virginia has been nothing short of dominant on the baseball field against the Terps over the past few seasons. The Cavs have handled the Terps in all of their last 18 meetings, and haven't fallen to Maryland since 2002. Things didn't exactly go Virginia's way in the early-going against the Terps.

After securing a 2-0 lead early in the contest, the Terps scored four un-answered runs, two of them off a David Poutier home run. Maryland held the lead until the seventh then everything seemed to fall the Cavaliers way. After a past ball would bring in Danny Hultzen to tie the game at four, a mixture of sacrifice fly's and a single from Dan Grovatt would prove to be the difference in Virginia's 19th straight win over Maryland.

Jarrett Parker and Danny Hultzen both went 4-for-5 on the day from the dish and led the Cavaliers attack. Game two of the series is set for Saturday at 4 p.m. at Davenport Field
