Big Train Get Revenge, Best Braves 10-4

The Big Train are now 10-3 on the season, good for first.

Box Score: W, 10-4

The Big Train sought to avenge Saturday's loss on Sunday, as they played the Herndon Braves in the second half of a weekend home-and-home series.

Michael Boyle (Radford) got the start for the Big Train, and gave the team six shutout innings. Boyle gave up just two hits and a walk while striking out seven. 
The scoring would get going for the Big Train in the second inning. After the team loaded the bases with one out, Ricky Santiago (Florida Atlantic) hit an RBI single and Parker Guinn (Washington) followed with a sacrifice fly to put the Big Train up 2-0.
An RBI groundout by Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC) in the sixth brought Tim Yandel (Tulane) home for the second time and the lead extended to 3-0.
Most of the Big Train lineup reached base during the seventh inning. The Big Train were able to plate four of those runners thanks to a wild pitch, a fielder's choice, and a passed ball to increase the lead to 7-0.
After forcing a pitching change, the Big Train would add two more runs, after Ty France (San Diego St.) laced a single. That made the lead 9-0, but the Braves would rally in the bottom half of the inning, scoring four runs.
However, the Big Train would add an insurance run in the ninth to cap the 10-4 victory.
With the victory, the Big Train are the first team in the CRCBL to ten wins and hold a 2.5-game lead for first place in the standings.
The Big Train will look to build on their 2.5-game lead on Monday, as they host the Vienna Riverdogs for a doubleheader at Povich Field. The games are scheduled for 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM, respectively, and it's Shirley Povich Bobblehead Night!
