Nashville Sounds Lose third straight game to Memphis Redbirds 10-1

 

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Brock Peterson hit a pair of two-run homers to power the cross-state rival Memphis Redbirds to a 10-1 rout of the Nashville Sounds in the penultimate game of the season on Sunday evening at Greer Stadium.

After sweeping the Iowa Cubs to begin the eight-game homestand, Nashville (67-76) has dropped the first three contests of the four-game series to Memphis.

Outfielder Logan Schafer went 2-for-3 with a double and RBI. Jordan Brown added two hits for his team-leading 34th multi-hit game of the season.

Nick Greenwood (4-3) gave up one run on three hits and two walks in five innings for the win. Jess Todd pick up a three-inning save, his second of the season.

Nashville starter Tyler Thornburg (2-3) recorded his worst Triple-A start for the loss, allowing five runs on six hits and a pair of walks in 3 2/3 innings. The 23-year had a run of seven consecutive strikeouts, but also let seven hitters reach with two outs.

Both teams traded runs in the third inning, beginning with three consecutive two-out singles from the Redbirds in the top of the frame. The Sounds tied it up with their only run of the contest on a pair of doubles from catcher Humberto Quintero and Schafer.

The Memphis offense exploded for six runs in the visiting half of the fourth inning for a 7-1 lead. Nick Derba and Lou Montanez each drove in runs with RBI doubles to remove Thornburg from the game before Peterson hit his first two-run homer over the left field wall.

Nashville had a chance to do damage in the bottom of the sixth, but failed to score any runs. With the bases loaded thanks to three straight no-out singles, the Sounds stranded all three batters with two strikeouts and an infield pop out.

Peterson’s second homer of the game in the top of the seventh extended the Redbirds lead to 9-1 with a two-run shot. Eugenio Velez later doubled and scored the final run on a Jose Garcia single.

Nashville pitching combined to fan a season-high 15 Memphis Redbirds. Donovan Hand gave up a season-high five runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings. Jesus Sanchez struck out a season-best six batters over three scoreless frames.

The Sounds look to avoid a sweep to the Redbirds as the two clubs wrap up the 2012 season with a 12:05pm CT Labor Day finale on Monday afternoon at Greer Stadium. Right-hander Hiram Burgos (2-2, 3.35) will take the mound against Memphis southpaw John Gast (8-5, 5.36).
