On a dark and gloomy Wednesday night, the Bethesda Big Train looked to avenge their loss from the night before as they faced the Youse's Orioles. In a game that was delayed by 30 minutes due to rain, Jake Valdez (St. Mary's College) got the starting nod for the Big Train and was able to record five outs before the game was called off and rescheduled as a doubleheader on Monday night, June 16th.
After a disappointing night at the plate against Gaithersburg, The Big Train were able to equal their hit total against the Orioles in just the first inning, while also pushing across two runs.
Logan Farrar (Virginia Commonwealth) sliced a doubled to right center field that was just deep enough to score a hustling Stephen Alemais (Tulane) all the way from first base on a close play at home, giving Alemais sole possession of the league lead in runs scored with nine. Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) hit a sharp single up the middle that scored Farrar, putting him second in the league in runs scored with eight on the season.
The game will pick up next Monday, June 16th at 4:30 p.m. where the game left off in the top of the second inning with the Big Train leading 2-0 as a doubleheader. The Youse's Orioles were already scheduled to return to Povich Field on this date for a game at 7:30 p.m. Tickets that were purchased for last night's game will be good for any future regular season Big Train home game.
