Nashville Sounds lose second game in a row to Omaha Storm Chasers, 5-1

 

Nashville Sounds Baseball

Nashville SoundsPapillion, NE – Former Brewers prospect Jake Odorizzi held the Nashville offense in check and Omaha belted three home runs as the Storm Chasers handed the Nashville Sounds a 5-1 defeat on Sunday afternoon at Werner Park.

Odorizzi (10-2) allowed only one run on four hits over seven innings of work, walking two and striking out a pair of batters during his 86-pitch effort. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 2.80 at the Triple-A level and picked up his 14th overall victory, one off the minor league lead.

Center fielder David Lough gave Omaha a 1-0 lead in the home half of the second when he belted a two-out solo homer to right off Sounds starter Hiram Burgos, the outfielder’s 10th roundtripper of the year.

The Storm Chasers increased the advantage to 3-0 in the fifth with two more big flies off Burgos. Second baseman Rey Navarro slugged a one-out solo shot to right, his first career Triple-A homer,  and designated hitter Irving Falu added a two-out solo blast to right, his sixth longball of the campaign.

Burgos (0-2) tossed his fourth quality start in five outings for the Sounds but suffered the loss after giving up three runs on six hits, including three home runs, in his six innings of work.

After Odorizzi kept the Sounds’ offense in check over the first five frames, Nashville finally got on the board in the top of the sixth, cutting the deficit to 3-1.

The Sounds loaded the bases with one out against the Omaha right-hander when Jordan Brown reached on an infield single, Taylor Green ripped a double to right off the glove of outfielder Mitch Maier, and Khris Davis drew a walk. Nashville was able to managed only one run, however, as Odorizzi limited the damage by retiring Caleb Gindl on a run-scoring groundout and popping up Jeff Bianchi to end the frame.

Omaha tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the seventh against the Nashville bullpen to stretch the lead to 5-1.

After the Storm Chasers loaded the bags against Jesus Sanchez on a pair of walks followed by a Maier single, Anthony Seratelli laced a one-out RBI single to center to plate Navarro and chase Sanchez from the contest. Brandon Kintzler inherited a one-out, bases-loaded jam and was greeted by a high chopper comebacker off the bat of Wil Myers (3-for-3) that went for an RBI infield single to increase the Storm Chaser’s lead to 5-1. The right-hander recovered to induce an inning-ending double play grounder from Clint Robinson.

The teams continue the series with a 7:05pm contest on Monday evening. Right-hander Claudio Vargas (5-1, 3.90) will toe the rubber for the Sounds and face Omaha right-hander Nate Adcock (7-4, 4.86).
