Big Train top T-Bolts

Big Train Best Bolts 5-4 
  
The Big Train won their second straight game on Sunday night, downing the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts 5-4.

Pitcher Michael Boyle (Radford) - pictured above - made his debut for the Big Train, and gave the team five solid innings. Boyle gave up just one run on two hits while striking out four.

But perhaps the bigger story in the game was the day that Kevin Tatum(Cornell) had at the plate. Tatum would finish the day 2-4 with a home run, a double, and a walk, driving in the first two of the Big Train's five runs. Tatum's home run gave the Big Train a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, and they wouldn't look back from there.

After Tatum's homer in the first, the Big Train would add to their lead in the fifth, pushing across three more runs. RBIs from Harrison Bruce (San Francisco) and Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) would give the Big Train the 4-1 lead, before Tatum scored his second run of the day on a wild pitch.

The T-Bolts would rally in the sixth inning, scoring three runs on a single play that included a few Big Tran mishaps. However, solid relief by Brock Larson(San Francisco) and Trevor Charpie (Tennessee) would close the door on any chance of a comeback. Charpie picked up his second save in as many days.

The 5-4 victory pushes Bethesda's record to 2-1 on the season. The box score can be found here.
