Nashville’s Hector Gomez Belts His 11th Homer of the Year

Nashville SoundsOklahoma City, OK – Despite rallying to tie the game in the 7th and 8th innings, the Nashville Sounds (53-49) were unable to top the Oklahoma City RedHawks Sunday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, losing the series final 7-5.

In the 8th inning, Sounds shortstop Hector Gomez, 3-for-4, belted a two-run home run, his 11th of the year, to level the game at five runs apiece; but the RedHawks answered by driving in two runs on a pair of two-out singles in the bottom of the frame, proving to be the difference.

Eight of the game’s 12 runs were scored with two outs.

The RedHawks scored two runs in the 1st inning on Marc Krauss’s groundout and a Preston Tucker RBI double to left field. In the following inning, Oklahoma City added one more run when Austin Wates slapped a single to centerfield, scoring Matt Duffy, who doubled to lead off the frame.

Nashville plated its first run in the 2nd inning on outfielder Kevin Mattison’s single to right-center field to score Gomez from third base. Mattison finished the game two-for-four and has recorded multiple hits in five of his last seven games.

In the 5th inning, left fielder Eugenio Velez drove a two-out single to center field to pull Nashville to within one run. Nashville worked a tie game in the 7th with infielder Irving Falu’s second bunt single of the night.

Tied 3-3 with one on and two outs in the bottom of the 7th inning, Sounds reliever Dustin Molleken entered the game looking for the inning’s final out, but instead the RedHawks touched the righty for a pair of RBI singles for the 5-3 advantage.

Nashville reliever Brent Leach (4-2) was charged the loss after allowing two runs on three hits in the 8th inning.

Sounds starter Taylor Jungmann worked five innings for Nashville, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks. He fanned five RedHawks before reliever Kyle Heckathorn stepped in to begin the 6th inning.

The Sounds return to Nashville on Monday to begin their third-to-last homestand of the season. The club welcomes the Colorado Springs Sky Sox to town for a four-game series. RHP Donovan Hand (1-6, 5.44) will make the start for Nashville opposite the Sky Sox’s LHP Chris Capuano (0-0, 3.52). Jeff Hem will have the call on 102.5 The GAME.
