Charlie White ripped a single into right scoring sophomore Anthony Papio as the Terps upset No. 13 North Carolina on Saturday in College Park.

Maryland is now 7-0 on Saturdays. Three of those wins have come against ranked teams, with freshman Mike Shawaryn starting all three.

White's walk-off was his third hit of the series. Papio was hit by a pitch and stole second to set up White's game-winner.

Freshman lefty Tayler Stiles (2-0) earned the win, pitching 4 and one-third innings of scoreless relief. Shawaryn and Stiles, both freshmen, pitched the entire game for Maryland, and both boast ERAs below 2.00.

The Terps (11-5, 2-3) look for the series win tomorrow in the finale. Kevin Mooney will make his first start of the season and will be opposed by Zac Gallen for the Tarheels. Coverage begins at 11:50 am. on WMUC Sports.
