Big Train Split Doubleheader With River Dogs in Vienna

Brock Larsen picked up the win in the first game.

Box Scores: Game 1: W, 7-2, Game 2: L, 3-0

The Big Train traveled to Vienna on Thursday to play a doubleheader, resuming a previously suspended game from earlier this season before playing tonight's regularly scheduled game.

Brock Larson (San Francisco) started for Bethesda in Game 1, and gave the team five quality innings, giving up just one run on five hits. He also struck out two batters.  Larson would have the luxury of taking the mound in the bottom of the first inning already pitching with a 5-0 lead. The Big Train offense got going from the very beginning. 
David Del Grande (Sacramento State) and Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech) led off the top of the first with a hit-by-pitch and a double, respectively, giving Ty France (San Diego State) two runners in scoring position and no outs. France drove both runners in on a two-run single, giving the Big Train their first two runs of the ball game. After a walk by Ricky Santiago (Florida Atlantic), France scored on an RBI single by Josh Spano (High Point), extending the Big Train lead to three runs. 
A Mike Miedzianowski (High Point) single and a bases-loaded walk by Del Grande plated Santiago and Spano, scoring the final two runs of the inning for Bethesda.
The Big Train would tack on another run in both the third and fifth innings, as an RBI double from Spano scored Tim Yandel (Tulane) and an RBI single from Del Grande scored Spano. 
With the Big Train leading 7-1, Kit Scheetz (Virginia Tech) came on to relieve Larson in the sixth inning. Scheetz pitched the final four frames, giving up just one unearned run on two hits while striking out four. Allowing just three total baserunners, Scheetz denied any hope the Riverdogs had of mounting a comeback, and the Big Train won the game 7-2.
Justin Hepner (San Diego State) got the start in the second game for the Big Train, and gave up three runs over five innings while striking out three. The Big Train mustered just three hits in the seven-inning game, and despite a shutout inning on the mound by Riley Stephenson (UMBC) in the sixth, the Big Train were unable to rally in the seventh inning, losing the game 3-0. 
The Big Train travel to Alexandria on Friday to take on the Aces for the final game of a three-day road trip before returning home on Saturday night to play host to the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts. Saturday is also Superhero Night, so come hang out with Spiderman, clang fists with Iron Man, or meet the Dark Knight himself.
