Big Train v. Giants
The Bethesda Big Train won their final regular season game of the 2016 season against the Gaithersburg Giants, but unfortunately that was not enough to clinch the #1 seed in the Cal Ripken League playoffs, which begin on Monday for the Big Train. Nevertheless, the 4-1 victory was a fitting end to a Big Train season that saw the team perform very well, entering the playoffs with a 28-12 regular season record.

Big Train at TBolts
Poor Thunderbolts pitching and explosive Big Train bats led to a dominant 27-6 rout by the Bethesda Big Train, in which every member of the starting lineup reached base at least twice. The 27 runs scored set a new all-time record for Bethesda, and the Big Train win, combined with a loss by the Baltimore Redbirds, tied the team for the best record in the league. It also raised Bethesda to first place in the Montgomery Cup standings.
