Nashville Sounds destroy New Orleans Zephyrs 13-0

 

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN - The Nashville Sounds (42-41) offense exploded for 13 runs before 7,879 fans at Greer Stadium in Saturday night’s 13-0 shutout victory over the first-place New Orleans Zephyrs.

The 13 runs by Sounds batters matches a season-high and the 13-run deficit is the largest since a 19-0 shutout at Colorado Springs in game one of doubleheader on August 4th, 2011.

Hunter Morris, 2-for-4, got Nashville on the board in the 1st inning with a two-out single into left field. Later, the 25-year-old slugger connected for a two-run triple in the Sounds’ five-run 5th inning to give Nashville a 4-0 advantage.

Sean Halton, who matched a career-best four-hit night with two doubles and two singles, drove in Morris with a base-knock into left field. The Sounds continued for five runs in the fifth inning to make it 7-0 in favor of the home team.

Starting pitcher Taylor Jungmann (4-4) helped keep the Zephyrs off the board by delivering seven scoreless innings to secure his fourth win with the Sounds. The 24-year-old right-hander limited the Z’s to two hits on the night, struck out eight batters, and escaped a bases-loaded one-out jam in the 4th inning with a strikeout followed by a groundout.

Jungmann has worked quality starts in each of his last two outings and improves his Greer Stadium record to 3-1 with a 2.59 ERA (7er/24.1ip). He helped his own cause by plating two Nashville runners with a single to right field in the 5th.

Pinch hitter Kevin Mattison batted for Jungmann in the 7th inning and drove a three-run triple to dead centerfield to give Nashville a 10-run advantage. Mattison came in to score via a Pete Orr infield single.

Newcomer Jason Rogers kept the six-run inning alive with a monster home run to dead center field, which scored two. In his first two Triple-A games, Rogers has a home run, triple, double and four RBIs.

Outfielder Caleb Gindl also contributed to the Sounds run column with his RBI single in the 4th inning, scoring Halton.

[320leftRelievers Arcenio Leon and Donovan Hand each pitched an inning of relief work to preserve the Sounds’ PCL-leading 7th shutout of the year. It is the first time Nashville has recorded back-to-back shut out victories since June 2009.

The Sounds will look to win the series against New Orleans in Sunday’s finale at 6:35pm. RHP Michael Blazek (0-3, 4.75) will take the hill for Nashville opposite the Z’s LHP Brad Hand (2-0, 2.33). Broadcaster Jeff Hem has the call on 102.5 The Game.
