“He's the face of our pitching staff moving forward after this year,” coach Rob Vaughn said. “That’s the guy that’s gonna be pitching on Fridays.”
The Terps slugged seven doubles and four home runs in the win.
The Terps could only manage two runs against the Knights' Ruddy Gomez.
The Terps left nine men on base and Nick Dean struggled in just 4.1 innings of work.
After watching last year's game film, Vaughn made slight adjustments to the Terps' lineup.
The two pitchers totaled 11 strikeouts with no walks as the Terps cruised to their first series sweep of the season.
Nick Dean combined with the Terps' bullpen to do just enough to capture their first series victory in almost a month.
Eddie Hacopian's father, Derek Hacopian, starred for the Terps and was the 1992 ACC Player of the Year.
The Terps scored six runs in the eighth inning to break their three game losing streak.
