Box Score - Game One
Box Score - Game Two

Late offensive production was not enough Saturday, as the Princeton baseball team was swept by Maryland in doubleheader action. The Terrapins handed the Tigers a 16-3 loss in the early game and employed a five-run seventh inning rally to drop Princeton 9-2 to conclude the afternoon.

The Tigers (0-3) and Terps (8-3) conclude the four-game series on Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

Game One

The game unraveled for the Tigers from the get-go, as Maryland opened with base runners reaching on two wild pitches, two hit basemen and a walk to score a pair of runs. The Terrapins tallied eight runs off three hits to put Princeton in a hole in the first inning.

It took until the fourth for the Tigers to see a base runner advance past second. Leadoff hitter Alec Keller broke up Maryland's shutout with a home run down the right field line, providing Princeton its first run of the 2013 campaign.

Keller had two of the Tigers' four hits in the game.

With runners on first and second, Ryan Albert hit an RBI double to right center to score Tyler Servais. It was Albert's second double in as many games.

Princeton debuted a pair of freshmen on the mound in Cameron Mingo and Luke Strieber. Mingo threw 4.0 innings and struck out four, while Striber had a strikeout over 3.2 innings of work.

Game Two

Princeton held a 10-8 hit differential, but stranded 12 base runners and committed an error in its 9-2 game two loss.

After two scoreless innings, the Terrapins capitalized loading the bases on a pair of walks and a hit batter against Tiger starter Kevin Link (0-1). A K.J. Hockaday RBI fielder's choice and a Kyle Convissar RBI single put Maryland up 2-0 heading to the third.

The Terps added two more runs in the fourth inning, before reliever Tyler Foote held them scoreless in the fifth and sixth.

Princeton found a momentum pull in the top of the seventh. Consecutive doubles down the left field line by Alex Flink and Keller gave the Tigers their first run. Danny Hoy advanced Keller to third on a single and Mike Ford added Princeton's second run on a sacrifice fly to center field. Princeton was unable to extend the inning and cut down the Terrapins' lead, stranding three runners.

After working to make it a two-run game, Maryland scored five runs on four hits and a Tiger error in the seventh to reroute the momentum back to the home side for good.  

Freshman Chris Bodurian made his Tiger debut in the ninth, holding Maryland hitless over his inning of work.

Billy Arendt, Flink, Keller and Johnny Mishu each went 2-for-4 to lead the Princeton offense.
