Fiers Hurls Three-Hit Shutout At Iowa


Nashville Records 1-0 Win as Right-hander Improves To 7-0 In Nine Starts

Nashville SoundsDes Moines, IA – Right-hander Mike Fiers was nearly flawless on Wednesday evening, allowing only four baserunners in a complete-game, three-hit shutout to lead the Sounds to a 1-0 victory over the division-rival Iowa Cubs at Principal Park.

With the gem, Fiers continued his dominance of the Pacific Coast League, improving to 7-0 with a 1.25 ERA (8er/57.2ip) in his nine starts for the Sounds this season.

He allowed only three hits (two singles and a double) while issuing one walk and striking out seven batters in Nashville’s sixth shutout victory of the year. Fiers was very efficient, throwing only 99 pitches on the evening (74 strikes) and retired 24 of his 28 batters faced.
