Game Preview: Bethesda Big Train vs DC Grays

Vinny Esposito (Sacramento State) bats against the DC Grays on June 17

                On Friday, and in their third doubleheader of the season, the Bethesda Big Train will take on the DC Grays for the fourth and fifth time this year. Big Train will play as the away team for the first game of the doubleheader, as it was originally scheduled to be played on July 1st, at the Nationals Youth Academy in DC, but was rescheduled due to rain.

                The Big Train leads the season series, 3-0. Over those three games, Bethesda has a run differential of +14 and a team ERA of 0.75.

                Friday’s projected starters are Johnny York (St. Mary’s College) and Sean Barry (University of San Diego). York, who is 2-0 with a 1.28 ERA for the Big Train this season, has looked impressive, striking out 22 batters over 21 innings and walking none. Barry also holds a 2-0 win-loss record and has a 1.54 ERA. He has walked eight and struck out 23 over 23 ⅓ innings. Watch for both pitchers to continue to be excellent versus the Grays.

                Vinny Esposito (Sacramento State) has been on fire over his last four games, batting .642 (9-for-14) with a home run. Look for him to keep seeing the ball well.

                Game one is scheduled to start at 4:30 PM, with game two at 7:30 PM. It’s also Superhero Night at Shirley Povich Field, and kids who dress up as their favorite hero get in free!
