Big Train Clinch Playoff Spot Despite Loss to Redbirds

By:Michael Natelli
Michael Boyle (Radford) pitched four innings and allowed two runs.

Box Score: L, 5-0

The Big Train hosted the Baltimore Redbirds on Friday night, as they looked to extend their winning streak to eight straight games.

Michael Boyle (Radford) got the start for the Big Train, and went four innings, giving up two runs on five hits and five walks while striking out one. 
Ty France (San Diego State) had a multi-hit game, but the Big Train would not push across a run, as Jack Fischer threw a complete-game shutout for the Cardinals. After the Redbirds got to Boyle for two runs, they'd score three more off the Big Train bullpen, ultimately winning the game 5-0. 
Despite the loss, the Big Train secured a trip back to the post season as a result of the Southern Maryland Nationals beating the Alexandria Aces last night.
The Big Train will look to get back on track on Saturday night as they hit the road to take on the D.C. Grays at Gallaudet University. Bubba Derby (San Diego State) gets the start for the Big Train.
Bethesda then returns to Povich Field on Sunday to take on the Southern Maryland Nationals. It's Activity Rocket Night, and the local organization will be out at the ballpark with fun activities for kids and local business partners.
Tomorrow night is also Bunt Mini Bobblehead Night! If you loved last season's bobblehead of Homer, make sure you show up early to snag the matching mini-bobblehead of Bunt that will go to the first 500 fans.
