Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – For the second straight night the Nashville Sounds let a multi-run lead slip away. The Salt Lake Bees overcame a four-run deficit to defeat the Sounds 11-5 Monday night at First Tennessee Park.

Jesse Hahn was in line for his second straight victory as he collected his first quality start of the season but the bullpen could not keep up its end of the bargain.

One day after his birthday, the 28-year-old logged six innings and gave up just one run, a second inning RBI single to Tony Sanchez. He issued three free passes on the night while fanning three as well.

Dodging the Roadkill: A Day Trip To West Tennessee

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Some of the best times I’ve had on my motorcycle have been in my own back yard.  Living in Tennessee presents me with beautiful countryside, navigated on back country roads for miles and miles.  I’m able to cross up into Kentucky, or down to Alabama and the roads and beautiful scenery just keep unfolding in front of me.

When I bought my first Harley last year, I traveled to San Marcos Texas. The first leg of my trip was to travel down Highway 79 and keep off of the Interstate.  I discovered beautiful roads, amazing countryside, quaint little towns and miles and miles of open road.

Before I knew it, I was in Memphis.
