Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Ben Bracewell tossed seven shutout innings to lead the Nashville Sounds to a 5-0 win over the Round Rock Express in front of 7,923 at First Tennessee Park Sunday night.

The right-hander limited the Express to just three hits and two walks while recording five strikeouts in his fifth win of the season. The dominant outing came off the heels of six scoreless frames in his last start.

Bracewell was the benefactor of some early offense as the Sounds plated three runs in the first inning. With one out in the opening inning, Josh Phegley and Yairo Munoz collected back-to-back singles to start a rally. Joey Wendle brought in the first run of the night with a bullet to right field, plating Phegley to make it 1-0.

Nashville Sounds get win over Reno Aces

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsReno, NV – The Nashville Sounds offense cooled off Sunday afternoon but savvy defense, opportunistic base running, and Mother Nature propelled them to a 5-4 victory over the Reno Aces. The win clinched a series victory for the Sounds who won just one series in both June and July.

Nashville was clinging to a 5-4 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth inning when the skies opened up. Greater Nevada Field became so saturated with water that the tarp stuck to the ground and was unable to be pulled all the way over the infield. Following a lengthy delay the umpires deemed the field unplayable and awarded the victory to the Sounds.
