Virginia pitchers gave up four home runs as the Cavaliers dropped their ACC Tournament opener to Maryland, 7-6, Thursday afternoon in Greensboro.
LaMonte Wade hit a pair of solo home runs and Charlie White and Kevin Martir added one apiece for Maryland.
Derek Fisher and Joe McCarthy each swatted a home run for the Wahoos.
Virginia starter Artie Lewicki gave up four earned runs -- his most this season -- in five innings of work while Maryland starter Jake Stinnett countered with eight strong innings, allowing just three earned with 10 strikeouts.
White led off the game for Maryand with a solo blast over the right-field fence to give the Terps a 1-0 lead.
Fisher responded in the second with a two-run shot to put the 'Hoos in front 2-1.
After Maryland scored a pair of runs in the fifth to move ahead 3-2, the Cavaliers answered in their half with a Nick Howard RBI-single to knot things at 3-3.
Wade's first home run of the game to lead off the sixth gave the Terps the lead back at 4-3, only to see a Nate Irving RBI single tie it once again at 4-4.
Martir's homer in the seventh gave the Terps a 6-4 cushion, and Wade's second longball in the eight, a two-run shot, made it 7-4.
The 'Hoos would get back to within a run on McCarthy's two-run blast in the ninth, but Jon L Prise struck out with the tying run on first to end the game.
Virginia will be back in action Friday when they take on North Carolina at 7 p.m.
