Game one is scheduled for Wednesday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark at 7:05pm.
New Orleans, LA – The New Orleans Zephyrs scored a run in the seventh and three in the eighth to steal a 4-3 win over the Nashville Sounds Sunday night at Zephyr Field.
Nashville built a 3-0 lead on a strong pitching performance from Daniel Gossett and home runs from Franklin Barreto and Rangel Ravelo only to see the bullpen cough it up late.
Gossett allowed one run on three hits in 6 2/3 innings and was in line for the win in his second career Triple-A start before the ‘pen faltered.
New Orleans, LA – Matt Chapman’s three-homer game wasn’t enough for the Nashville Sounds in a 6-5 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs Saturday night at Zephyr Field.

The last three-homer game by a Sounds player was Russell Branyan who also did it against New Orleans on May 16th, 2008. Others to accomplish the feat include Ryan Braun, Craig Wilson, Darnell Coles, Dan Pasqua and Steve Balboni.

With the regular season coming to an end Monday, the game will not be resumed and official statistics from tonight’s game will not count.

Memphis, TN – The Nashville Sounds recorded their 10th shutout victory of the season in a 3-0 win Wednesday night over the Memphis Redbirds at AutoZone Park.

After Jaycob Brugman led off the game with a single, it was quickly erased when Walsh grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. With two outs in the first, Nunez unloaded on a 2-2 breaking ball to give the Sounds an early 1-0 lead.
Papillin, NB – The Nashville Sounds got four hits from Joey Wendle and scored seven runs in the fourth inning on their way to a 12-3 rout of the Omaha Storm Chasers Monday night at Werner Park.
The big win, coupled with New Orleans’ loss, has lowered the Sounds’ magic number to five. At 75-55, Nashville is 20 games over .500, the high-water mark of the season. The win was Nashville’s 42nd of the season on the road – a PCL-era best for the Sounds.
Wendle’s four hits matched a season high, and the Sounds got three hits from Rangel Ravelo and Josh Rodriguez while Matt Chapman homered and Jaycob Brugman belted his second three-run homer in as many days.
