Sounds Take First Game Of Doubleheader, 6-4

Nashville SoundsMemphis, TN – The Nashville Sounds beat the cross-state rival Memphis Redbirds, 6-4, on Friday evening at AutoZone Park in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader.

Nashville (46-41) racked up ten hits in the seven-inning contest, as Adam Stern went 3-for-3 with an RBI and Ben Johnson added two hits and two RBIs.

The Sounds scored in the opening to take an early 1-0 lead after the first three Nashville hitters reached base to load the bases. Stern led off the contest with a double followed by a Lorenzo Cain bunt single and Mat Gamel walk. Brendan Katin then grounded into a 5-4-3 double play that allowed Stern to score for the first run of the game.

Johnson added to the Nashville lead in the top of the fourth inning with a two-run double. After shortstop Luis Cruz and second baseman Johnny Raburn singled earlier in the frame, the Nashville catcher smoked a two-run double to center field to plate both runners to give the Sounds a 3-0 lead. Later in the inning with two outs, Cain hit an inning-ending grounder to Donovan Solano, but the shortstop made a throwing error to first base and allowed Johnson to score from second for a 4-0 advantage.

The Sounds picked up another run in the fifth for a 5-0 lead. After Katin was hit by a Lance Lynn pitch to reach base, the outfielder advanced to third base on a Joe Koshansky single and then came home as Cruz grounded into a another double play.

The Redbirds got to Sounds starter Marty McLeary in the bottom of the next frame as Memphis trimmed the lead to 5-4. After McLeary hit the first two batters and walked the next, Ruben Gotay crushed a grand slam over the right field wall. It was Gotay’s eighth homer of the season.

The Sounds scored an insurance run in the next frame to make it 6-4. Johnson led off with an infield single to reach base, moved to second on Ray Olmedo’s PCL-leading 12th sacrifice bunt, and then came home on a Stern RBI base knock.

McLeary allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 4 1 /3 innings. Reliever Mike McClendon (4-2) earned the win after contributing 2 2/3 shutout innings while fanning three.

Lynn (6-7) picked up the loss, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts in four innings pitched.
