Maryland got three runs in the fifth and another run in the seven to close within 10-8 but a five-run bottom of the seventh wrapped it up. Tito Flores homered to start it off and Clark Elliott contributed a two-run homer.
Willie Weiss (3-2), the fourth of five pitchers, picked up the win.
Troy Schreffler had three hits and three RBI with a home run for Maryland Ryan Ramsey gave up 10 runs, six earned, to suffer his first loss in 11 decisions.
