With the loss, Nashville fell to 72-64 and has now dropped 17 of the last 20 games at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City during the last three seasons.
Eric Farris went 3-for-4 while swiping a team-high three stolen bases, marking the third time a Sound has achieved the feat after Trent Oeltjen and Norris Hopper each stole three bases in a game this season.
The Sounds lone run came on the first play of the game, as Adam Stern crushed the second pitch from RedHawks starter Brandon McCarthy over the left field wall to give Nashville the early 1-0 lead. It was Stern’s fifth home run of the season and Nashville’s first game opening home run since Tony Gwynn went yard on May 11, 2009 at Omaha.
Oklahoma City went ahead by scoring two runs in the bottom of the second inning to take a 2-1 lead. After former Sound Hernan Iribarren walked and Matthew Brown singled, Gregorio Petit hit a two-out two-run double to left field before being thrown out trying to stretch the hit in to a triple to end the inning. «Read the rest of this article»
