Big Train Bats Prove Better, Down Orioles 9-8 in 10

By:
Tim Yandel's tenth inning RBI double sealed the win.

Box Score: W, 9-8

The Big Train traveled to Glen Burnie on Saturday to play the Youse's Orioles in the first game of a three-game road trip.

Danny Mooney (Davidson) got the start for the Big Train, and gave up just two runs over five innings. Despite Mooney's strong performance, he'd ultimately receive a no-decision.
 
The Big Train offense got going early, scoring multiple runs in the top of the first inning. After singles by David Del Grande (Sacramento State) and Ty France (San Diego State), a sacrifice fly by Ricky Santiago (Florida Atlantic) would give the Big Train the first run of the game. After a single by Mike Miedzianowski (High Point), a two-run double by Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC) extended the lead to 3-0 heading into the bottom of the first.
 
In the top of the second, the Big Train tacked on two more runs, as a one-out RBI single from Santiago scored Del Grande and Kevin Tatum (Cornell). 
 
The Orioles would get their runs off Mooney in the second and fifth innings to make the score 5-2.
 
In the bottom of the seventh, the Orioles staged a comeback, getting to the Big Train bullpen for three runs and tying the game at five. 
 
The Big Train got those runs back in the top of the ninth, as RBIs by Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech), Parker Guinn (Washington) and Del Grande put the team up 8-5. 
 
However, the Orioles once against mounted a comeback in the bottom of the ninth, getting to the Big Train bullpen for three more runs.
 
In the top of the tenth, Tim Yandel (Tulane) played hero for the Big Train, with a big one-out RBI double that scored Logan Farrar (Virginia Commonwealth) and gave Bethesda the 9-8 lead. 
 
Brock Larson (San Francisco) then pitched a scoreless bottom half of the inning, clinching the 9-8 victory for the Big Train. 
 
After 20 games, the Big Train now sit with a league-best 16-4 record, boasting an incredible .800 winning percentage. They take on the Vienna Riverdogs on Sunday afternoon before traveling to Gaithersburg on Monday to take on the third-place Giants at Criswell Automotive Field at Kelley Park.
 
After the road trip is over, the Big Train return home to Povich Field for a doubleheader against the D.C. Grays on Tuesday. The games are scheduled to start at 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM, respectively, so come on out and get a two-for-Tuesday double dose of baseball!
