Herrera Goes 4-for-5 With Four RBIs For Nashville In Losing Effort
Des Moines, IA – The Nashville Sounds squandered an early eight-run lead en route to suffering a heartbreaking 12-11 loss to the Iowa Cubs on Sunday afternoon at Principal Park.
Nashville (20-17) — which has led in eight of its 12 road losses this season — held leads of 8-0 and 11-4 in the game but did most of its damage early, scoring just once in the final six innings against the Iowa bullpen as the I-Cubs mounted their rally. Iowa scored five runs in the sixth and three in the eighth to complete its improbable comeback.
