Nashville Sounds fall to Albuquerque Isotopes, 3-2

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsAlbuquerque, NM -After combining for 45 runs on 58 hits in the first two games of the series, the Nashville Sounds and Albuquerque Isotopes came back to earth Monday night as the Isotopes edged the Sounds 3-2. The two ball clubs mustered just five runs on 15 hits.

Nashville’s bullpen was asked to pitch 7 2/3 innings after the game began with a bit of controversy. Sounds starter Ben Bracewell was ejected after recording one out and throwing just three pitches. On his third pitch he threw the ball behind Albuquerque’s Raimel Tapia and was tossed, prompting the Sounds to go to their bullpen much earlier than anticipated. Ryan Dull entered the game and allowed a double from Tapia and a run-scoring single from Josh Fuentes as the Isotopes jumped out to a 1-0 lead. A sacrifice fly from Garrett Hampson doubled Albuquerque’s lead in the second.
