The Big Train traveled to Towson on Friday to take on the Baltimore Redbirds, as they looked to clinch the CRCBL Regular Season Title.
Brock Larson (San Francisco) got the start for the Big Train, and gave up just one earned run over 6.2 innings. But despite giving up just three hits and a walk, Larson would ultimately take the loss.
Kevin Tatum (Cornell) and Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) both recorded two-hit games, but the Big Train would not push across a run, as Matt Denny threw a complete-game shutout for the Cardinals. The one unearned run in the seventh would be enough for the Cardinals, as they took the 1-0 victory.
The Big Train will try for the regular season title once again on Saturday, as they take on the Youse’s Orioles at Backman Park. A win for the Big Train clinches the title and a first-round bye in the playoffs, however, the Big Train could also clinch the bye with a loss by the Alexandria Aces. Bubba Derby (San Diego State) projects to start for the Big Train, and will look to build on his last outing in which he gave up no earned runs on just three hits over eight innings.
After Saturday’s game against the Orioles, the Big Train return to Povich Field on Sunday for the Fan Appreciation Night doubleheader against the Alexandria Aces. In honor of our great fans, everyone will receive a Big Train fan to help keep them cool.
