Ryan Ramsey, who was born in Gaithersburg and currently lives in the city, pitched a perfect game for No. 23 Maryland yesterday. The Terps Beat Northwestern 13-0. Coming into the 2022 season, there had only been 33 in NCAA history — just 19 in nine-inning games.
Per UMTerps, Ramsey became the first Maryland pitcher to toss a perfecto since Dick Reitz on April 10, 1959, against Johns Hopkins — which was the first perfect game in NCAA Division I history. It was the Terps’ first no-hitter since March 1, 2014, when Jake Stinnett no-hit UMass. On the other side, every player in Maryland’s lineup recorded at least a hit as the offense totaled 13 runs on 17 hits.
The 13-0 victory is the Terps’ 34th of the season. That’s already tied for their second-most regular season win total in school history, trailing 2015’s 36-win campaign. Their 34-8 record is their best start in school history. The Terps are 10-3 in the Big Ten and ranked 23rd in the country. Ryan Ramsey is now 8-0.
