    COLLEGE PARK, Md. - No. 10 NC State baseball fell 7-4 in game two of its series at Maryland on Saturday at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium.

    The Wolfpack (14-7, 3-5 ACC) brought the go-ahead run to the plate during its three-run eighth inning, but couldn’t produce a finishing kick to cement the comeback bid. Maryland (15-6, 4-4) opened up a 4-0 lead by the end of the second inning, and extended that lead to 7-1 before the Pack began to rally.

    Patrick Peterson turned in a strong four innings of relief, holding the Terrapins to two earned on three hits with a season-high seven strikeouts. Logan Jernigan (3-2) took the loss on four earned over the first two innings. Cory Wilder and Will Gilbert pitched an inning each to close the game, striking out a pair combined.

    Trea Turner hit his second homer of the year in a 1-for-3 day with two runs, an RBI, and a walk. Brett Austin scored once in a 1-for-5 effort. Carlos Rodon drew the start at designated hitter for the second time this year, and responded with a 1-for-3 game including an RBI. Andrew Knizner and Logan Ratledge provided one RBI each.

    State fell into a 4-0 deficit before Turner’s solo shot to left led off the fourth. Two more Terrapin runs crossed in the sixth to make it 6-1. One more scored in the seventh to stretch the lead to its widest margin.

    Garrett Suggs started the Pack’s eighth-inning rally with a one-out infield single to second. Austin singled to right and Turner walked to load the bases with one away. Knizner drove in the first run with an RBI single to left. Rodon was hit by a pitch to push the next across. Ratledge scorched an RBI single by the third baseman’s outstretched glove to close the gap to 7-4. A pair of strikeouts by Maryland’s Kevin Mooney ended the threat and sealed the Terrapin win.
