Box Scores: Game 1 W, 8-6 I Game 2 L, 2-13

The Big Train traveled to Vienna yesterday afternoon for a doubleheader with the Riverdogs, looking to continue their hot streak. The team would pick up a victory in the first game behind clutch performances by a pair of High Point University teammates.

With the Big train down 4-0 in the top of the first, relief pitcher Will Resnik (High Point) was able to hold down the fort, giving up no runs over 3.1 innings. Resnik gave up just one hit and struck out five, giving the offense every opportunity to overcome the deficit.

The offense thanked Resnik for his efforts, scoring eight runs over a two inning span between the fifth and sixth. The fifth inning saw an RBI single from Brennan Middleton (Tulane) as well as a two-run homer from Mike Miedzianowski (High Point), pulling the team back within one.

After seeing their deficit increase to three runs in the top of the sixth, the offense was able to collect itself and put together a five-run performance in the bottom half of the inning. Brendan Hendriks (San Francisco) and Middleton would pull the game back within one, setting up Miedzianowski with the bases loaded, two outs, and the Big Train trailing by just a single run. Miedzianowski came up in the clutch, hitting a bases-clearing double to give the Big Train a new two-run edge, their first lead of the night, heading into the seventh.

Hugh Adams (Florida Atlantic) was able to hold on for the save in the bottom of the seventh, securing the 8-6 lead for the Big Train as they prepared for the second game.

The team would lose the second game, as 13 Riverdog runs were just too much
for the offense to overcome. However, highlights included two shutout innings by Robbie Kidd (Tennessee), Michael Bass (UNC Wilmington) drawing two walks, and a home run from Hendriks. It also allowed some position players to do some pitching as Hunter Renfroe (Mississippi State) and Justin McCullough (El Camino) combined for five strikeouts over 2.1 innings or work.
