Nashville responded with a run of its own in the next half inning as Renato Nunez doubled to begin the frame, advanced to third on a Matt Chapman single, and scored on a sacrifice fly from Jaff Decker.

Nashville Sounds keep Omaha Storm Chasers hit-less in 4-0

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsPapillion, NB – The Nashville Sounds made history Wednesday night by no-hitting the Omaha Storm Chasers. A combined effort from Chris Smith, Sean Doolittle, Tucker Healy, and Simon Castro got the job done for the Sounds in their 4-0 victory. It was the seventh no-hitter thrown in club history and first since Manny Parra’s perfect game in 2007.

Smith, the Sounds starter, cruised through the first six innings, allowing just two base runners via base on balls. He then handed the ball off to Doolittle who is with the club on a Major League rehab assignment. Doolittle needed just 12 pitches to retire the three Storm Chasers he faced including two punch outs.

Healy came on in the eighth inning and sat the three Omaha hitters he saw down in order on a mere nine pitches.
