The No. 13 North Carolina baseball team grabbed a 2-1 series win over Maryland Sunday afternoon with a 9-4 victory, improving to 14-5 overall and 4-2 in league play.

Freshman pitcher Zac Gallen earned his second win of the year and Chris McCue remained perfect in his save opportunities this season to defeat the Terrapins and hand them their sixth loss at 11-6 on the year and 2-4 in the ACC.

Carolina spurted out to a 5-0 lead thanks to some solid hitting, but Maryland rallied back, closing the gap down to 5-4 as the clubs headed to the ninth inning.

But the Tar Heel bats lit it up in the final inning to close out the Terps in emphatic fashion thanks to hits by Michael Russell, Parks Jordan and Korey Dunbar.

Next up for the Tar Heels is a return back to Chapel Hill to take on Princeton at Boshamer Stadium Tuesday at 6 p.m.
