No. 15 Maryland baseball defeats Purdue, 18-7, clinches Big Ten regular season title for first time in program history

Holding onto a 5-2 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, No. 15 Maryland baseball was in a comfortable spot with its offense finally waking up.

Junior right-handed pitcher Nick Dean struck out the first two batters, but the game was suddenly tied at five after consecutive doubles and a two-run homer from the Boilermakers.

However, in the top of the sixth, sophomore shortstop Matt Shaw walked up to the plate with a purpose, taking his second pitch for a ride over the center field wall, giving Maryland a 7-5 lead, one it never relinquished.
