SILVER SPRING — Out of four Cal Ripken League doubleheaders on Saturday, one involved the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts and the visiting Bethesda Big Train at Blair High School. While the Big Train shut out the T-Bolts in the first game 6-0, Bethesda saw the end of their undefeated streak when the T-Bolts took the second one 8-4.
In Game One, the first run came in the top of the fifth inning when Bethesda outfielder Udie Summerall pinch hit for Tyler Villaroman and singled to left field to drive in Tyler Reis.
Big Train infielders Carson Taylor and John Glenn each had three hits. Taylor went 3-for-5 at the plate with two RBIs, while Glenn also went 3-for-5 with one RBI and two runs.
“They’re great players,” said Bethesda manager Sal Colangelo. “They swing the bat very well. They went up there with an idea and went playing what they had, what they wanted to do.”
