Crossed arms laid on the fence of Maryland baseball’s dugout as players watched in silence as Boston College rushed the field in the ninth. Nick Wang jumped onto home plate following his walk-off home run against Andrew Johnson.

The hit lifted the Eagles to a 2-1 victory over the Terps in the series finale, Maryland’s lone loss of the weekend. The Terps’ lack of offense muddied Evan Smith’s six-inning start where the left-hander surrendered just one run. It was Smith’s longest outing this season, his second as a starter.

The Terps exit Boston ranked No. 35 in RPI immediately following Sunday’s loss. The mark is the second-best in the Big Ten despite Maryland leading the conference in overall wins. The Terps currently sit in seventh place of the eight-team conference tournament with one series left.

Wang added the Eagles’ only other run in the first inning — knocking an RBI double into left field. The sophomore’s ninth inning blast was his first in nearly two months and ended Boston College’s eight-game losing streak.

Smith held the Eagles scoreless for the next five innings following the infielder’s first-inning hit. The freshman’s success came from limiting baserunners. Boston College (22-27) had multiple runners on in an inning just once in Smith’s outing — recording none in three of Smith’s six frames on the mound. Smith walked just one while allowing four hits.

Smith committed to Maryland (34-19) out of PDG Academy. He was the seventh-ranked left-handed pitcher and the 37th best prospect in Maryland in the Class of 2023, according to Perfect Game. Sunday’s start showcased that talent.

The left-hander started the game in place of fellow-freshman Joey McMannis, who didn’t travel while dealing with an illness.

The performance rounded a strong weekend from Maryland’s starters. Omar Melendez tossed a complete seven-inning start in the first match of Saturday’s doubleheader. Logan Koester followed the display with a two-run, five-inning outing to claim the series win in one day.

The Terps’ pitching staff averaged a collective 2.25 ERA during the weekend.

While Smith limited the Eagles’ batters, Maryland’s offense got on base. But the Terps couldn’t send them home, stranding six runners and hitting 2-12 with runners on. Maryland batted 0-8 with runners in scoring position.

Chris Hacopian tied the game in the eighth with a solo home run — his 14th long ball of the season. The hit tied Sam Hojnar for the most on Maryland’s roster and the second-most in the Big Ten. Hacopian is three home runs away from tying the Terps’ freshman record.

Johnson held the Eagles scoreless for two innings before Wang’s walk-off.

Michael Farinelli matched Smith’s performance with five scoreless innings in his start despite only striking out two, allowing for Boston College’s eventual win.

The Terps have one series remaining against Penn State. The three-game set begins Thursday in College Park.
