Sounds Lose Again in Albuquerque, 7-1

 

Nashville Drops 7th Straight Road Game

Austin Peay State UniversityAlbuquerque, NM – The Nashville Sounds dropped their second straight game in Albuquerque on Friday evening, falling 7-1 at Isotopes Park.

The defeat was the seventh straight road loss for Nashville (39-49), which is just 1-5 in Albuquerque this season.

Isotopes starter John Ely (6-5) turned in a quality outing, picking up the win by holding the Sounds to one run on six hits over seven strong innings.

The Sounds missed out on an early scoring chance against Ely. With the bases loaded and one out, the right-hander induced an inning-ending 1-2-3 double play from Nashville third baseman Andy Gonzalez to escape the jam unscathed.
