Aces drop one one late to the Big Train


The Alexandria Aces fell at the hands of Bethesda 15-5 in a Shirley Povich Field barnburner Tuesday night.
Alexandria moves to 13 games out of first – last in the Ripken League – while the frontrunning Big Train advance their record to 23-6.
Scotty Morgan (GMU) cracked a three-run bomb in the third inning knotting the ballgame up. Morgan is now tied with Bethesda’s Jacob Southern for most homers in the league at seven.
It was Bethesda’s two-out rally in the sixth frame, riding three hits toward six runs, to break open the scorebook and never look back.
The Aces only scored a single run in the final six innings while Riley Cheek (UNC Charlotte) notably batted in both second and six inning runs.
Alexandria is off Wednesday for the All-Star break where seven donning Pinstripes will take to the field representing Alexandria.
The Club is back in action Thursday and Friday for a two-game homestand hosting of the T-Bolt and Big Train.
