Big Train Bats Come Up Giant Against Giants, Win 8-2

Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC) finished 3-for-5.

Box Score: W, 8-2

The Big Train traveled to Gaithersburg for the first time on Monday evening to face the new Montgomery County rival Giants at Criswell Automotive Field at Kelley Park. 

Zach Morris (Maryland) got the start for Bethesda, and gave the team five solid innings. Morris gave up just two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four. 
The Big Train offense got the scoring started in the fourth inning. After getting hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, Ty France (San Diego State) stole second base to get into scoring position. Ricky Santiago (Florida Atlantic) hit an RBI single to center field that scored France to give the Big Train a 1-0 lead. 
After the Giants scored two off Morris in the bottom half of the inning, the Big Train responded in a big way in the top of the fifth. 
In the top of the fifth, Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC) singled, Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) reached on an error, and David Del Grande (Sacramento State) was hit by a pitch to start the inning. 
Two runs scored as Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech) was hit by a pitch and France walked. That made it 3-2 Big Train with the bases still loaded and no outs. Santiago kept the scoring going by hitting a two-run single to left field. Tucker Tobin (George Mason) and Willard each hit RBI singles as well to push the score to 7-2.
In the sixth, the Big Train added an insurance run, as Del Grande scored on an error to extend the lead to 8-2. 
Kit Scheetz (Virginia Tech) came in to relieve Morris in the sixth inning, and pitched three innings. He gave up just one hit and struck out two. Justin Hepner (San Diego State) closed out the game in the ninth to give Big Train the 8-2 win.
The win secured the Montgomery Cup for the Big Train as they've secured an 8-0 record against the other teams in the county.
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!
