Charlie White Breaks All-Time Stolen Base Record; Terps Knock Off JMU 13-6

by John Vittas

Charlie White had three hits and three RBIs en route to breaking the University of Maryland's all-time stolen base record in Tuesday's 13-6 win at James Madison. His first-inning swipe broke Larry Long's 14-year mark of 63 career steals, which was tied by Alfredo Rodriguez in 2011. White, who is only a junior, added another stolen base in the fifth inning.

The Terps posted 13 runs on 14 hits Tuesday. Shortstop Blake Schmit drove in three runs and stroked three doubles. He now leads the team with six two-baggers in seven games.

Freshman Mike Rescigno had a career day too. The New Jersey native went 4-for-5 with two doubles and a pair of RBIs.

White, Schmit and Rescigno combined to go 11-for-15 with seven doubles and eight RBIs. The team had eight extra-base-hits in all, their highest total in over a year.

Brandon Lowe began the scoring with an RBI double in the first and Krysthian Leal ended it by recording his first career Division I RBI with a sac fly in the ninth.

Jake Drossner (1-0) pitched five innings and struck out three to record the win in his first start of the season. Zach Morris followed him by retiring six of the seven batters he faced in his Terps debut.

Maryland (5-2) will return home Friday to take on UMass at 4pm. Jake Stinnett is expected to start for the Terps. Stinnett is the reigning ACC Pitcher of the Week and College Sports Madness National Pitcher of the Week, having struck out 11 batters while allowing just one hit in eight shutout innings against Bryant on Saturday.
