Big Train Improve to 2-1, Beat Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts 5-4

By:Michael Natelli
Michael Boyle (Radford) pitched a fantastic game.

Box Score: W, 5-4

The Big Train won their second straight game on Sunday night, downing the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts 5-4.

Pitcher Michael Boyle (Radford) made his debut for the Big Train, and gave the team five solid innings. Boyle gave up just one run and two hits while striking out four. 
 
But perhaps the bigger story in the game was the day that Kevin Tatum (Cornell) had at the plate. Tatum would finish the day 2-4 with a home run, a double, and a walk, driving in the first two of the Big Train’s five runs. Tatum’s home run gave the Big Train a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, and they wouldn’t look back from there. 
 
After Tatum’s homer in the first, the Big Train would add to their lead in the fifth, pushing across three more runs. RBIs from Harrison Bruce (San Francisco) and Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) would give the Big Train the 4-1 lead, before Tatum scored his second run of the day on a wild pitch by Silver Spring-Takoma's Chris Fusco.
 
Silver Spring-Takoma would rally in the sixth inning, scoring three runs. However, Trevor Charpie (Tennessee) would close the door on any chance of a comeback, picking up his second save in as many days.
 
The 5-4 victory pushes Bethesda’s record to 2-1 on the season. The Big Train will look to build on that in Monday night’s double-header at Povich Field against the D.C. Grays. It’s Hometown Heroes Night, so the Big Train will look to sweep the double-header for the firemen, policemen and military members that serve our nation so bravely.The games start at 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM, respectively, and tickets to both games can be purchased here or at the gate!
