Big Train Comeback Comes Up Short at Gaithersburg

By:Michael Natelli
Bubba Derby got the start for the Big Train.
 
The Big Train traveled into Gaithersburg on Wednesday to take on the Giants at Criswell Automotive Field at Kelley Park. 
 
Bubba Derby (San Diego State) started for the Big Train, and struck out five batters. However, the Giants got to Derby for five runs, four of them earned.
 
After the Giants scored two runs in the first inning, the Big Train offense would get its first run in the top of the second, as an RBI groundout by Parker Guinn (Washington) scored Tim Yandel (Tulane).
 
The Giants scored another run in the bottom half of the second, but the Big Train got that run back in the fourth as Tucker Tobin (George Mason) scored on a wild pitch to cut the deficit to one run.
 
After the Giants scored two more runs in the bottom of the fourth, Will Resnik (High Point) came in to relieve Derby in the sixth inning. With the Big Train trailing by three at the time, Resnik kept the game within reach, giving up no runs on just two hits over his three innings of work.
 
However, the Giants scored two more runs off Trevor Charpie (Tennessee) in the eighth, giving the Big Train offense a five-run deficit to overcome in the top of the ninth.
 
The ninth inning would get off to a good start for the Big Train, as Guinn and David Del Grande (Sacramento State) drew back-to-back walks. A ground ball by Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech) and an RBI single by Ty France (San Diego State) scored both runners, to cut the Giants lead to 7-4. However, the next three Big Train batters went down and the Giants would win the game 7-4. 
 
Bethesda will play an (almost) doubleheader against the Vienna Riverdogs on Thursday before finishing this week's road trip with a game in Alexandria against the Aces on Friday.
 
Tomorrow's game will be an almost doubleheader as the first game is a continuation of a suspended game and the second game will be only seven innings long. The first game will restart in the top of the first inning, the Big Train up 2-0, one out, runners on first and second base, and a one-ball, one-strike count.
