Big Train Fall to Redbirds

Big Train Fall to Redbirds

Box Score: L, 3-7

In a matchup between the Baltimore Redbirds and the Bethesda Big Train on Wednesday night, the Redbirds won 7-3 and advanced to the finals of the CRCBL playoffs, while Bethesda fell into the losers bracket with a chance to redeem themselves on Thursday night. 
 
Brock Larson (San Francisco) received the starting nod and went two and a third of an inning giving up four runs on three hits. Henry Sisson (North Carolina) came out of the bullpen and in relief, pitched five and two thirds of an inning giving up five hits and one run while striking out six.

The Redbirds scored four runs on two hits in the top of the 3rd inning, taking a 4-0 lead. The Redbirds added to their lead, scoring one run on three hits in the 5th inning.

The Big Train looked to have a big 8th inning but only brought home one run on three walks, cutting the lead to 5-1. However, the Redbirds scored two more insurance runs in the 9th inning to go ahead 7-1.

In the bottom of the 9th, Wes Rea (Mississippi State) doubled down the left field line, scoring Chris Lewis (Sacramento State), who walked to get on base.  Rea later scored on a passed ball but it was not enough to overcome the large deficit.

The Big Train will play the Rockville Express on Thursday night at 7:30 pm.  The loser will be eliminated and the winner will play the Redbirds in the CRCBL Championship.
