COLLEGE PARK, Md. The Virginia softball team (14-32, 5-12 ACC) dropped a 2-0 decision in a rain-shortened game to Maryland (31-15, 5-9 ACC) Sunday at Robert E. Taylor Stadium. The game was called in the bottom of the sixth inning because of heavy rain and thunderstorms in the area. The Terrapin victory also gave UM the series win, two games to one.

The Terps scored their pair of runs in the bottom of the third, thanks to a two-run homer to right by Sarde Stewart, her seventh bomb of the season and the second of the series.

In the top of the fourth, Carly Winger led off the inning with a double to right center and eventually took third on a passed ball, but was left stranded after a pop out and two groundouts. The Cavaliers left five runners on base in the game.

Maryland outhit Virginia 4-2. Right fielder Sarah Tacke recorded a single to accompany Winger’s double.

UVa pitcher Karla Wilburn (9-15) took the loss, throwing five innings. Sarah Dooley (14-11) got the win for Maryland in six innings of work with five strikeouts.

Virginia returns to action with a doubleheader at Towson Wednesday.
