Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Veteran right-hander Chris Smith came through with a brilliant outing to lead the Nashville Sounds to a 5-1 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers in front of 6,001 fans Tuesday night at First Tennessee Park.

With a taxed bullpen, Smith worked a career-high eight innings. On his 110th pitch of the night, he struck out Reymond Fuentes to end the eighth inning – setting a career-high in innings pitched.

Nashville’s (47-33) three-run second inning was more than enough support. Joey Wendle walked to start the inning and got into scoring position on a wild pitch. Matt Olson plated Wendle with the first run of the game when he drilled a double off the right field wall.
