Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Outfielder Celeb Gindl belted a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to power the Nashville Sounds to a 4-3 victory over the Fresno Grizzlies on Wednesday afternoon at Greer Stadium.

Trailing 3-1 entering the eighth, the Sounds (10-22) plated all three runs with two outs in the frame to snap a season-long nine-game losing streak.

Pinch-hitter Jordan Brown started the rally with a single and moved to second base on Taylor Green’s infield groundout. Anderson Machado then plated Brown with a softly hit two-out single over the shortstop in center field. Gindl then belted a two-run bomb off Steve Edlefsen (0-3) over the center field wall. The homer was Gindl’s third of the season and first at home.
