Big Train Use Long Ball to Knockout Nats

Big Train Use Long Ball to Knockout Nats 
The Big Train got back on track on Sunday night, as they beat the Southern Maryland Nationals 6-2 at Povich Field.
 
Box Score | VIDEO: Post Game Interviews (Cole, France, and Spano)

Luis Collazo (Virginia Tech) got the start for the Big Train, and kept the team in the game early on, giving up just two runs. However, he'd ultimately be forced out of the game after 4.2 innings after an apparent injury, and was therefore ineligible to pick up the win. The injury did not appear to be serious.

The Nationals scored the first run of the ballgame in the top of the first inning, but the Big Train quickly answered in the second.

Tim Yandel (Tulane) led off the bottom of the inning by getting hit by a pitch. He then stole second and advanced to third on a single by Ryne Willard (Tallahassee CC), putting runners on the corners with no outs forJosh Spano (High Point). Spano smacked a two-run double to give the Big Train the 2-1 lead.

In the bottom of the third, the Big Train added to their lead, scoring two more runs. Ty France (San Diego State) led off the inning for the Big Train, and managed to pick up an RBI with nobody on base as he hit a leadoff home run to extend the Big Train lead to 3-1. Two outs later, Ryne Willard drew a walk and scored on another double by Spano.

In the top of the fifth inning, Collazo gave up one run and left with the injury, but Brock Larson (San Francisco) came on to pitch, and would go on to strike out six batters over the final 4.1 innings of the game, giving up no runs on just one hit and two walks.

The Big Train added two more insurance runs, scoring in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. In the fifth, a sacrifice fly by Willard brought Tucker Tobin (George Mason) home to give the Big Train the 5-2 lead, before a solo home run by Johnny Cole (Coastal Carolina) pushed the lead to 6-2 in the sixth inning.

Larson's dominance kept the Nationals off the board for the remainder of the game, and he picked up the win as the Big Train beat the Nationals 6-2.

Danny Mooney (Davidson) takes the mound for the Big Train on Monday, as they hit the road to take on the Rockville Express at Knights Field at Montgomery College. Come out to support the team as they try to notch a season sweep of their cross-county rivals!

The Big Train then return to Povich Field on Tuesday to take on the Youse's Orioles. Tuesday will also be Health Night, so come get some fresh air and enjoy some baseball.

Tickets can be purchased here or at the gate.
