Big Train Come From Behind to Win

Bethesda Hops on Comeback Train,
Wins Late in Silver Spring  
 
The Big Train traveled to Blair Stadium on Wednesday night, as they looked to turn things around against the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts. 
 
However, things would get off to a rough start for Bethesda, as the T-Bolts scored four runs in the first three innings. Box Score: W, 6-5

Trailing 4-0, the Big Train climbed back into the game in the top of the fourth, scoring three runs. A two-run double by Josh Spano (High Point) would scoreTy France (San Diego State) and Tim Yandel (Tulane) to make it 4-2, before Spano himself scored on a single by Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) to cut the deficit to 4-3.

The T-Bolts scored another run in the bottom of the fourth, and Will Resnik (High Point) would come in to relieve starter Riley Stephenson (UMBC). Resnik would go on to pitch 5.1 innings, giving up no runs on just two hits and a walk while striking out four.

After three innings dominated by pitching, the Big Train cut into the T-Bolts lead in the top of the eighth, scoring another run. Spano once again came up in the clutch for Bethesda, hitting an RBI single to center field to score France, making the score 5-4.

Resnik would throw a shutout inning in the bottom of the eighth, giving the Big Train one last chance to tie things up.

The offense answered in the top of the ninth.

With one out, Kyle Wernicki (Virginia Tech) reached first base after being hit by a pitch.  He advanced to second on a wild pitch, and came in to score on a two-out single by Kevin Tatum (Cornell). That tied the game at five.

After a walk by France, Yandel came up with an RBI double to score pinch runner Harrison Bruce (San Francisco) and give the Big Train their first lead of the game.

The slim lead would be enough for Resnik to close things out in the ninth, as he retired the side in short order to secure the 6-5 victory.

The Big Train have an off-day on Thursday before traveling to Baltimore on Friday to take on the Redbirds.  Bethesda then travels to Glen Burnie on Saturday to take on the Youse's Orioles before returning to Povich Field on Sunday for the Fan Appreciation Night doubleheader against the Alexandria Aces. In honor of our great fans, everyone will receive a Big Train fan to help keep them cool. Tickets can be purchased here or at the gate.
