Big Train Fall to Redbirds in Championship

Justin Hepner (San Diego State) allowed just two run and 5 K's.

Box Score: L, 4-1

The Big Train hosted the Baltimore Redbirds this afternoon, as both teams squared off in the CRCBL Championship for the fifth consecutive season.

Justin Hepner (San Diego State) got the start for the Big Train, and went seven quality innings, giving up just two runs on three hits while recording five strikeouts.
In the top of the fifth, the Big Train would score the first run of the game after Parker Guinn (Washington) led off the inning with a walk. The Big Train catcher then stole second and third base to give Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) a runner in scoring position with one out. Cole came through for the Big Train, hitting an RBI single to score Guinn and give the Big Train the 1-0 lead.
However, the Redbirds staged a comeback and got to the Big Train pitching for four runs in the next two innings. After scoring one in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game, Baltimore scored three more in the eighth to take the 4-1 lead heading into the top of the ninth. 
The Big Train would get one base-runner in the ninth inning, as Kevin Tatum (Cornell) drew a one-out walk. However, Bethesda would fail to score any runs, and the Redbirds would go on to win the game 4-1.
The Big Train finishes the season with a combined 32-16 record, good for best in the CRCBL. The Big Train also walk away with some hardware, as they'll receive the Montgomery Cup for having the best record in match-ups against fellow Montgomery County opponents.
