Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsFresno, CA – Ryan Lollis connected with an RBI double in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Fresno Grizzlies a 4-3 win over the Nashville Sounds on Thursday night at Chukchansi Park in the second game of a four-game series.

With one out in the inning and Amaury Rivas (4-7) on the mound, Fresno pinch hitter Ydwin Villegas doubled to center field and scored the go-ahead run on the next play on Lollis’ game-winning two-bagger.

Snapping a three-game winning streak, it was Nashville’s (51-62) second extra-inning game in a row and eleventh this season (5-6 in those contests).

In his second Triple-A start and first since rejoining the Sounds after being optioned last week by the Brewers, Tyler Thonburg allowed three hits and two walks over five scoreless frames. The right-hander also struck out seven with 75 pitches (52 strikes) in a no-decision.

Fresno starter Eric Hacker also tossed a no-decision, striking out four while giving up three hits in seven scoreless innings.

The game was scoreless until the Grizzlies took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Reliever Donovan Hand entered the game and allowed a one-out walk to Todd Linden, who moved to scoring position on a passed ball. Brock Bond then hit an RBI single to right field to score Linden.

The Sounds struck back to take a 3-1 in the visiting half of the eighth. Grizzlies reliever Dan Runzler recorded the first two outs of the frame before allowing a couple of walks to outfielders Caleb Gindl and Khris Davis. Third baseman Taylor Green tied the game with an RBI single to left field, followed by a two-run base hit by first baseman Jordan Brown.

Nashville briefly led, as the Grizzlies came back to tie the game at 3-3 in the next frame, plating two runs against three Sounds relievers. Bond delivered another RBI single, followed by a run-scoring line drive hit by Tyler LaTorre, both with two outs.

The Sounds and Grizzlies continue their series at 9:05pm CT on Friday evening at Chukchansi Park. Nashville right-hander Hiram Burgos (0-0, 3.00) makes his second Triple-A start against Fresno righty Andrew Kown (4-6, 5.88).
