The Sounds scored first in the low-scoring affair on Blake Lalli’s two-out RBI single in the top of the fourth inning. Hainley Statia (2-for-2), who drew an inning-opening walk from Memphis starter Richard Castillo (0-2), scored on the knock to break a scoreless tie.

Nashville doubled the lead in the eighth with a run off Redbirds reliever Marc Rzepcynski. Sean Halton led off with a single and went station to station on a Blake Davis sacrifice and Statia single before scoring on Caleb Gindl’s RBI single to center.

Memphis got a run back in the home half of the eighth against Michael Olmsted. Adron Chambers drew a one-out walk and later scored on a two-out RBI double off the bat of Ryan Jackson. Olmsted left Jackson stranded at second by popping up Brock Peterson to end the inning.

Rob Wooten closed out the victory with a scoreless ninth. The right-hander worked around a leadoff Greg Garcia doubled, retiring the next three batters to nail down his ninth save of the year.

The teams continue the series with another 7:05pm meeting on Friday. Right-hander Jimmy Nelson will make his Triple-A debut with a start for the Sounds. Memphis will counter with right-hander Scott McGregor (1-2, 7.31).
