By:David Schneider
Wes Rea crushes his first of two 3-run home runs.
The Bethesda Big Train (28-7) traveled to Herndon to take on the Braves (16-16) on Monday night.  The Big Train looked to bounce back after a loss the previous night and in the 13-6 win, Sean Labsan (Florida Atlantic) got the started nod and in five innings of work gave up two runs on two hits while striking out an outstanding 10 batters.
The Big Train scored early and often.  To kick it off in the top of the 1st inning, Logan Farrar (Virginia Commonwealth) doubled and Brandon Lowe (Maryland) was hit by a pitch.  With both men on, Wes Rea (Mississippi State) clobbered a four bagger, giving the Big Train an early 3-0 lead.
The Big Train added one run in both the 3rd and 4th innings.  Chris Lewis (Sacramento State) hit a solo homer in the 3rd and Cody Brown (Mississippi State) hit a solo home run in the 4th. 
In the bottom of the 4th, the Braves hit a two-run home run to cut the Big Train lead to 5-2.
In the 5th inning, Wes Rea hit his second 3-run dinger of the game, giving him a league leading five on the season and six RBI in the game.
In the 7th inning, the Big Train added on some extra runs.  Cody Brown was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, scoring Chris Lewis.  Then, Albee Weiss (Cal State Northridge) hit a bases clearing single giving them 13 runs on the night.
The Braves added two runs in each of the 6th and 7th inning, but it was not enough.  The Big Train offense exploded for four home runs and 15 hits.
Notes:  Wes Rea had two home runs and six RBIs...Cody Brown and Albee Weiss had two RBIs each....Stephen Alemais (Tulane) had three hits....Come out to Povich Field on Tuesday night to watch the Big Train play against the Baltimore Dodgers.
