Big Train College Round-Up 5/3

By:Nate Burnside
Jimmy Reed (BT ' 10) was named ACC Player of the Week.

Jimmy Reed (BT '10) made the most of his pitches last Friday night as it took just 98 of them to pitch a complete game shutout of Duke. The Maryland pitcher gave up only five hits and two walks while striking out four as he took apart the Blue Devil lineup down in Durham. Reed's performance resulted in him being named ACC Player of the Week. 

On the other side of the country, a few Big Train players came up big for St. Mary's (CA) as well. Ben Griset (BT '12) continued his strong season with another good outing (6IP, W, 3ER, 7H, 2BB, 6K) while Patrick Keane (BT '13) made a few appearances out of the bullpen to help out (3IP, SV, 0ER, 3H, 0BB, K). At the plate, Brendan Kalfus (BT '11) continued his hot streak as he went 9 for 16 this week with three walks and a double. He scored four times and drove in five more.
 
On a larger scale, the Bethesda Big Train would like to congratulate Michael Bass (UNC-Wilmington) and Hunter Renfroe (Mississippi State) on being named to the Watch List for the Golden Spikes Award. Bass and Renfroe played together for the Big Train in 2011 and 2012 and are having great seasons. They are both near the top of the leaderboards of triple crown statistics (batting average for Bass, home runs for Renfroe) and their teams have been very successful. Also, Bass has extended his on-base streak to an NCAA-high 41 games.  
 
Other notable pitching performances: Ian Gilbaut (BT '13 / Tulane) - 4.1IP, W, SV, 0ER, 0H, 2BB, 4K... Eric Martin (BT '12 / Tennessee) - 0ER, H, 2BB, 3K... Michael Frank (BT '11 / Bowling Green St.) - 6IP, 2ER, 6H, 2BB, 3HBP, 8K... Joe Mantiply (BT '10 / Virginia Tech) - 7IP, W, 3ER, 6H, 3BB, 5K... Bubba Derby (BT '13 / San Diego St.) - 3.2IP, 2SV, ER, 2H, 2BB, 5K.
 
Other notable hitting performances: Brennan Middleton (BT '10-'12 / Tualne) - 4/13, BB, 4HBP, 2R, 2RBI, 2SB... Tyler France (BT '13 / San Diego St.) - 2/9, 6BB, 2R, RBI...
