Game Preview: Big Train at Grays

Clayton Daniel (Jacksonville State) throws out a runner at first.

In the final game before the CRCBL All-Star Break, the Bethesda Big Train hope to strengthen their grasp of first place in the division against the D.C. Grays on Monday night.  This game originally slated to be the first part of a doubleheader on June 8th, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

On the mound for the Big Train will be John Murphy (Maryland). The sophomore right-hander has tossed 25 1/3 innings over 5 starts, holding a 2-2 record and a 5.68 ERA. Murphy was solid in his last outing, pitching 5 innings of 2-run ball against the Rockville Espress on July 6, and will look to carry over that success into Monday's showdown with the Grays.

Junior Vinny Esposito (Sacramento State) and sophomore catcher Mike Emodi (Creighton) have been two of the Big Train's hottest hitters as of late. Both are batting north of .400 over the last week, with Esposito also adding his team-leading 4th home run of the year on July 6.

First pitch is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in Washington D.C.
