Celebrate the Fourth on the Fifth; Dollar Dog Night Tonight! BT Ranked #11 Nationwide; Derby is CRCBL Pitcher of the Week!

TONIGHT: Celebrate the the Fourth on the Fifth!   

The Big Train last played on Saturday night in Rockville. They came back and defeated the Express 3-2 with the help of CRCBL Pitcher of the Week (see story belowBubba Derby (San Diego State). The layoff due to rain and the holiday will allow Derby to take the mound against Rockville again tonight. Derby (4-0) currently leads the CRCBL in wins and earned run average (0.00).
The Express sit in third place (three games back) behind the first-place Big Train. With a record of 14-4, the Big Train are ranked #11 in the country, the only team in the CRCBL to be nationally ranked (30 teams) or under consideration (34 others).
While most people celebrated America yesterday, the Big Train hope that fans aren't tired of doing so. Come out to Povich Field tonight and cheer on the Big Train until you are red, white, and blue in the face!

The first 200 fans will receive mini-flags courtesy of the American Legion,Captain America will be there to take pictures with fans, and kids will get free red, white, and blue popsicles! And since there's nothing more American than a hot dog, we will be having our annual Dollar Dog Night as well!

The gates open at 6:00pm and first pitch will be at 7:30pm. Make sure to come out early for the mini-flags and to make sure you grab a seat as the stadium will be packed for this Montgomery County rivalry. Tickets are available here or at the gate.
Bubba Derby Wins CRCBL Pitcher of the Week!  

Big Train pitcher Bubba Derby (San Diego State) has been named the Cal Ripken League's Pitcher of the Week after throwing 11 innings of shutout baseball in which he allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out ten.

"It's a great honor and hard work is paying off," said Derby. "But we gotta keep rolling."

Derby pitched twice in the eligibility period that spanned from June 24th through June 30th. The first was a seven-inning complete game shutout of the Vienna Riverdogs in the second half of a doubleheader. Derby threw 88 pitches and gave up two hits and a walk while striking out six.

His second appearance was in relief in Rockville last Saturday night. Derby held the Express scoreless while the hitting secured a comeback victory. Derby pitched four innings of no-hit relief despite giving up two walks. He struck out four.

Derby is currently leading the league in wins (4) and earned run average (0.00) and will take the mound for the Big Train against the Rockville Express at Povich Field tonight at 7:30pm.

Derby's award makes back-to-back Pitcher of the Week awards for the team, as Mike Boyle (Radford) earned the award the week before.
