Papillion, NE -The Nashville Sounds crushed four baseballs over Werner Park’s outfield walls Friday night, but never recovered from a five-run first inning turned in by the Omaha Storm Chasers, who defeated the Sounds 6-5.
Laying the lumber for the Sounds was first baseman Hunter Morris, who homered twice in the game, third baseman Stephen Parker, and right fielder Cole Garner.

Parker hit his in the sixth; and Garner sent his to left field in the ninth to pull the Sounds to within one.
