Box Score: L, 3-6
Gary Clark and Darnerien McCants were in the house tonight to help the Big Train celebrate DC Sports Night, as fans with hometown jerseys received free admission. Clark in particular was impressed with Povich Field, describing it as "unbelievable." Both former Redskins receivers, Clark and McCants spent time giving fans a chance to get some autographs and pictures with their favorite hometown athletes.
The Big Train were unable to come up with the win last night, falling 6-3 to the Alexandria Aces. Jon Carlson (High Point) took the mound for the Big Train last night, giving the team four solid innings. Carlson allowed no earned runs while giving up just three hits and recording four strikeouts.
The Big Train scored two early runs in the second and third innings. The first run coming in on an Avondre Bollar (San Diego State) double and the second on a solo home run by Brennan Middleton (Tulane).
Alexandria scored four runs and took a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the fourth. Cameron Cuneo (UC Santa Barbara) would come in to pitch the fifth inning. Cuneo would go three strong, giving up just two hits and no runs while striking out two. Cuneo's solid three innings of work would give the Big Train a late chance to rally.
However, the Big Train rally would come up short. Though they were able to score one run to cut the lead to one, the Aces scored a couple in the ninth to seal the game.
Be sure to come see if the now #22 ranked Big Train can get their revenge against the Aces on Wednesday night as they host the Aces again at Povich Field.
