Storylines

• Despite dropping two of three to fi fth-ranked Florida State last weekend, Miami enters the most recent Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) at No. 17 - and with the second-toughest strength of schedule in the nation, according to WarrenNolan.com.

• The Hurricanes’ weekend rotation of southpaws Chris Diaz, Bryan Radziewski and Andrew Suarez delivered another strong series against the fifth-ranked Seminoles, allowing just four combined earned runs over 18.1 innings of work.

• Among last season’s top performers against the Terrapins at Alex Rodriguez Park: Dale Carey (three hits, three RBI’s), Michael Broad (three hits, two RBI’s), Brad Fieger (three RBI’s) and Tyler Palmer (three hits, three runs).

• John Szefc, in his fi rst season at the helm in College Park, has guided Maryland to an 18-15 overall record and a 4-11 mark in conference play. By contrast, Miami skipper Jim Morris is in his 20th season at Miami and 35th overall as head coach.
