Nashville Sounds Come One Out Away From Victory Before Fresno Delivers Walk-Off Hit
Fresno, CA – Brad Mills delivered a stunning start and Kent Matthes roped a run-scoring double in the 11th, but the Fresno Grizzlies scored a pair of runs late to walk-off over the Sounds on Saturday night at Chukchansi Park with a 3-2 win.
Despite Mills’ 1-5 record this season, the lefty was coming in riding a quality start streak through his last three outings. He made it four straight by throwing 7.0 shutout innings with six strikeouts and no runs. Mills made it through his eighth start of 2015 with just 74 pitches, 52 going for strikes, never walking a batter. The veteran took the no-decision, but lowered his ERA to 3.91.
