BALTIMORE, Md.--The UMBC baseball team dropped their tenth straight to Maryland, 11-6, Tuesday at The Baseball Factory Field at UMBC.
The Terrapins improve to 21-18 on the season while the Retrievers drop to 8-22 with their last win dating back to April 1 with an 8-2 victory over NJIT.
Junior Sean Rae (0-2) took the loss for the Retrievers, going 2.0 innings and giving up six runs, three hits, while walking six and striking out two.
Casey Baron picked up the win for the Terps, giving up just one hit in two scoreless innings, while striking out five.

The Terps started the scoring off in the second with a Joe Palumbo RBI single but the Retrievers quickly answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning thanks to a two-run homer by sophomore Tom Meaney to give the Retrievers the 2-1 advantage.
The Terps, however, added six more runs in the top of the third to take the lead for good. They would add another run in the sixth and three more in the ninth for a total of 11 runs off 10 hits.
The Retrievers added to their two-run second inning with another two-run homer in the third, this time by junior Joe Fowler, as well as a run in the fifth thanks to a Maryland error and one more in the ninth for a total of six runs off 13 hits and one Maryland error.
The Retrievers host Binghamton in a four-game series this weekend, beginning with a 4 p.m. contest on Friday.
