COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Maryland defeated the Virginia Cavaliers, 7-4, at Shipley Field this evening as Terp starter Brandon Agamennone pitched his first complete game of the season to improve to 4-5 on the year.

Three consecutive hits, singles by J.R. Thomas and Mike D’Archangelo followed by a double by Larry Long, gave the Terps a 2-1 lead.
Virginia scored three runs in the fifth as Tim LaVigne led off the inning with his fourth home run of the season and 1-out single by Brian Sherlock scored Snoddy and Ted Kinsman, who both singled, to give the Cavaliers a 4-2 lead.
