Sounds Homer In Ninth To Win 9-8 Over Sacramento


Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Outfielder Jeremy Reed hit a game-winning solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to power the Nashville Sounds to a 9-8 victory over the Sacramento River Cats on Sunday afternoon at Greer Stadium.

Nashville (13-23) homered a season-high four times on the afternoon, highlighted by two long balls from outfielder Brett Carroll. Marking the third time this season that a Sounds player has gone yard twice in game, Carroll also became the first Sound to hit two homers off the guitar-shaped scoreboard in a game since 2000.

Sam Narron (1-1) earned the win while providing a quality relief outing from the bullpen. The tall left-hander tossed 7 1/3 innings of scoreless ball while scattering eight hits with six strikeouts.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen


Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The economic data held few surprises. Retail sales rose 0.5% in April, boosted by higher gasoline prices (ex-gasoline, retail sales rose just 0.2%). Weekly claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell back following a spike in the previous week, but the underlying trend is higher. The monthly inflation reports reflected higher gasoline prices (no surprise), but the impact was tempered by the seasonal adjustment (which expects increases in gasoline prices in the spring). An increase in motor vehicle prices, which could reflect difficulties in the seasonal adjustment, but seem unlikely to re-occur, added to both the CPI and PPI. The CPI rose 0.4% in April (+3.2% y/y), with gasoline accounting for about half of the monthly increase (and more than half of the year-over-year increase). Ex-food & energy, the CPI rose 0.2% (+0.1854% before rounding), a 2.1% annual rate in the first four months of 2011 (vs. a +0.8% pace in the last six months of 2010) – that’s not “runaway” inflation. «Read the rest of this article»
