Curtis RobisonPennsylvania pitchers worked around nine Maryland hits and issued 10 walks, but only allowed three runs on the afternoon. The error bug that led to six unearned runs allowed in game one did not rear its head in game two as Pennsylvania committed just one error. 

Maryland took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the 2nd inning without a hit benefiting from four walks. That lead stood up until Pennsylvania plated four runs in the top of the 7th inning. The big blow of the inning was a two-run triple from 2017 OF Curtis Robison.

Pennsylvania added five additional runs in the 9th and coasted to the 9-3 win. 

GAME TWO HIGHLIGHTS:

+ A trio of Pennsylvania pitchers 2017 RHP Noah Weber, 2017 RHP Omar Ward and 2017 RHP Mitchel Hoon combined to toss six innings of scoreless relief.
+ Robison (2-4, 3B, 2 RBI), 2017 SS Kris Kremer (2-2, 2B, BB, 2 R) and 2018 2B/RHP Tanner Esposito (2-2, BB, 2 R, 2 RBI) carried the big sticks for Pennsylvania.
+2017 2B Pete Vaccaro continued his impressive offensive performance with his 3rd RBI of the series and a 2nd double.
