Big Train Cage Cardinals, Sweep Doubleheader

Luis Collazo (Virginia Tech) pitched a complete game in game 2

Box Score: Game 1: W, 1-0 | Game 2: W, 7-3

The Big Train hosted the Presstman Cardinals in a doubleheader at Povich Field on Sunday, as they looked to build on their two-game winning streak. Because the first game was a makeup game from a previously-scheduled game at Presstman, the Big Train were the away team in the first game. 

Michael Boyle (Radford) got the start for the Big Train in the first game and went the distance. It was his second seven-inning complete-game shutout of the season. Boyle gave up just three hits and a walk while striking out seven.
 
The Big Train offense would give Boyle just enough offense to get the win, as an RBI single by Tucker Tobin (George Mason) in the first inning scored Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) to give the Big Train the 1-0 victory.
 
Luis Collazo (Virginia Tech) took the mound in Game 2 for Bethesda, and also pitched a complete game. Collazo allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six.
 
The Cardinals got on the board first, putting up two runs in the first inning. However, the Big Train got one of the runs back in the bottom half of the inning, as a groundball by Tobin would score David Del Grande (Sacramento State) to cut the lead to 2-1.
 
In the third inning, the offense gave the Big Train its first lead of the game. RBIs from Harrison Bruce (San Francisco), Tobin, and Josh Spano (High Point) made the score 4-2 Bethesda.
 
After the Cardinals scored another run in the fourth, the Big Train added two insurance runs on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch by Mike Miedzianowski (High Point) and an error. The Big Train added one more run in the sixth on an RBI double by Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech) to make the score 7-3.
 
Collazo pitched a shutout inning in the seventh to close out the game, giving the Big Train the 7-3 victory.
 
The Big Train now hit the road for three games prior to Wednesday's All-Star Break. The Big Train travel to Regency Furniture Stadium on Monday to play a doubleheader against the Southern Maryland Nationals, before traveling to Herndon on Tuesday to play a game against the FCA Herndon Braves.
 
On Wednesday, the Big Train will host the CRCBL All-Star Game at Povich Field! There will be six players representing the Big Train in the mid-summer classic, some come on out to see the best that the league has to offer.
