Isotopes Beat Sounds, 14-5, On Wednesday

 

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN — The Albuquerque Isotopes roughed up the Nashville Sounds, 14-5, on Wednesday night at historic Greer Stadium in the third game of a four-game set.

Having dropped the last five games in a row to Albuquerque this year, Nashville (51-46) matched a season-high for hits allowed (18) while setting the mark for runs given up in an inning (9), team home runs allowed (6), and most home runs surrendered by a pitcher in a game.

For the second consecutive night, Albuquerque did damage early to Nashville starting pitching, as starter Chase Wright’s nine runs on four long balls in 2 2/3 innings were the most given up by the southpaw since July 27, 2007 as a member of the Double-A Trenton Thunder. It also marked the second time in his ten-year career that Wright allowed four homers in a contest, as four straight homers in a span of 10 pitches were hit by Boston’s Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek on April 22 earlier that season. «Read the rest of this article»
