Rivas Deals As Sounds Win 7-1 In New Orleans

Nashville SoundsMetairie, LA – Third baseman Taylor Green’s grand slam was part of a six-run first inning that paved the way to a 7-1 victory over the New Orleans Zephyrs at Zephyr Fieldon Sunday evening.

Winners of four in a row, Nashville (24-32) has now held New Orleans to one run for the second consecutive night and in six of the seven victories this season.

Sounds starter Amaury Rivas (4-5) looked sharp in his team-leading sixth quality start, allowing one run on five hits while striking out four in six innings. The win was Rivas’ first in his last eight starts, leading back to April 22nd. In three starts against New Orleans this season, the 25-year old right-hander has picked up three wins while posting a 1.35 ERA (3er/20ip).

Edwin Maysonet went 3-for-4 with two runs scored while Jordan Brown added two hits.

The Sounds quickly jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the top of the first inning on starting pitcher Tom Koehler. Brandon Boggs doubled home Brown for the first run, and later scored on a Maysonet bunt single. After Caleb Gindl was issued a two-out walk to load the bases, Green unloaded a grand slam over the wall in center field.  The grand slam was Nashville’s first this season and Green’s seventh long ball this year.

Brendan Katin hit Nashville’s last grand slam last season against New Orleans on August 29th, 2010 at Greer Stadium.

The Zephyrs scored their lonerun back in the next frame, as center fielder Bryan Petersen singled and later scored on a sacrifice fly by third baseman Matt Dominguez.

The Sounds’ final run of the contest came in the top of eighth inning as Gindl singled home Maysonet.

Gindl (six games) and Green (five games) each extended their respective hitting streaks to tie their previous season highs.

Zack Segovia added two scoreless innings. Donovan Hand fanned one in one scoreless frame.

In the loss, Koehler (5-2) pitched five scoreless innings for the loss after the Sounds scored six on the right-hander in the opening frame.
