Big Train Earn 11th Win in Past 12 Games

Ben Griset went 5.2 innings giving up only three hits and one earned run.
Box Score: W, 9-1

It was another great night of baseball on Friday, as the Big Train captured their sixth consecutive win. The Big Train defeated the Southern Maryland Nationals 9-1 as Ben Griset (St. Mary's (CA)) picked up win number three on the season.
 
Griset went 5.2 innings, giving up only three hits and one earned run. The key to the game was keeping the Nationals' bats quiet early so that the Big Train offense could get hot in the middle of the game. Griset answered the call by striking out seven.
 
Griset was rewarded for his efforts in the third inning, as the offense struck for six runs including five off home runs from Hunter Renfroe (Mississippi State) and Tucker Tobin (George Mason). Michael Bass (UNC Wilmington) also contributed an RBI single to give Griset a 6-0 lead headed into the bottom of the third.
 
After a Nationals run in the bottom of the inning, the offense responded by tacking on two more on four hits. Brendan Hendriks (San Francisco) collected an RBI on a single to score Bass, and Tobin would follow that up with a bases-loaded single to drive in Renfroe to extend the lead to seven.
 
Eric Martin (Tennessee) relieved Griset in the sixth and kept the bats quiet for the next two innings, striking out four while giving up only one hit.
 
Brennan Middleton would score in the eighth inning to add on to the already-substantial lead, giving Will Resnick (High Point) an eight-run cushion as he came on to pitch the ninth inning.
 
Resnick was able to coast through the final three outs, giving up no runs and only one hit, securing the 9-1 victory.
