Box Scores: Game 1: W, 2-0 | Game 2: W, 9-1

The Big Train traveled to Waldorf, Maryland on Monday night to take on the Southern Maryland Nationals in a doubleheader at Regency Furniture Stadium.

In the first game, Danny Mooney (Davidson) got the start for the Big Train. Mooney pitched a seven-inning complete game shutout, giving up seven hits and two walks while striking out seven.
 
The Big Train got their first run in the top of the third, as an RBI single by Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC) - pictured above - scored Ty France (San Diego St.). Willard himself scored in the top of the fifth, giving the Big Train the 2-0 lead. With Mooney pitching a shutout, the two runs were more than enough to get the victory, as the Big Train won 2-0.
 
Bubba Derby (San Diego State) started for the Big Train in the second game and gave the team five shutout innings. Derby gave up just four hits and two walks while striking out seven.
 
Derby pitched his entire outing with a lead, as the Big Train offense gave him eight runs of support. 
 
A balk and an RBI groundout by France gave the Big Train the early 2-0 lead in the first, before a sac fly by David Del Grande (Sacramento State) scored Josh Spano (High Point) to push the lead to 3-0.
 
In the third inning, a two-run blast by Ryne Willard drove in Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina), making the score 5-0. After a sacrifice fly by Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech), Willard struck again in the fourth, hitting a two-RBI single to extend the Big Train lead to 8-0. 
 
The Big Train added one more insurance run in the sixth, as a solo home run by Ricky Santiago (Florida Atlantic) pushed the score to 9-0. The Nationals scored a run in the bottom of the sixth, but Trevor Charpie (Tennessee) pitched a perfect seventh inning to give the Big Train the 9-1 win. 
 
After sweeping the doubleheader in Waldorf, the Big Train travel to Herndon on Tuesday to take on the FCA Herndon Braves. On Wednesday, the Big Train will host the CRCBL All-Star Game at Povich Field! There will be six players representing the Big Train in the mid-summer classic, so come on out to see the best that the league has to offer!
 
The next Big Train home game is on Thursday against the Presstman Cardinals on Carnival Night.
