After the first, Thornburg settled in to turn in his first quality start of the season, logging seven innings for Nashville in the losing effort. He fanned six batters and walked one, limiting Omaha to four hits.

The seven-inning outing matches the longest start by a Sound this season and seventh occurrence.

Nashville quickly took one run back in the home half of the first inning as outfielder Sean Halton hit an RBI-single to score Josh Prince, 2-for-5, who doubled earlier in the frame. Halton, 3-for-4, extended his hit streak to a season-best nine games.

Omaha added to their lead with two runs in the eighth inning against Sounds reliever Travis Webb. After Willy Taveras led-off with a single into right field, nine-hole hitter Quentin Berry connected for a homer just left of dead center, his first of the year.

Webb recorded one out before Johnnie Lowe came in to finish the inning. Lowe stayed in for the ninth to close out the game for Nashville, allowing two hits in 1 2/3 innings.

Nashville Sounds - Caleb GindlThe Sounds plated their final run in the ninth on Prince’s double to centerfield. The hit scored Stephen Parker, who reached base on an Omaha throwing error.
