It was Nashville’s (29-35) sixth last at-bat win and second straight one-run victory, which also moved 1-4 in extra-inning play this season.

Green went 3-for-4 with a double to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. Green is now hitting .400 (44-for-110) in his last 32 games. Caleb Gindl also went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to a team-best 14 games. Mat Gamel went 3-for-5 with a double, marking the second straight game with three hits for the slugger.

Round Rock quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. After Omar Quintanilla singled to reach base, Chris Davis hammered a towering home run down the right field line. The long ball was Davis’ 10th of the season.

Nashville knotted the contest at 2-2 in the bottom of the second inning. After Tommy Hunter allowed three consecutive singled to Caleb Gindl, Edwin Maysonet, and Taylor Green, outfielder Brandon Boggs hit an RBI groundout to first base for the first run. During the next at-bat to Eric Farris, Edwin Maysonet scored the tying run from third base on a pass ball by catcher Robinson Diaz.

The Sounds went ahead, 3-2, in the bottom of the fourth frame. With two outs in the inning Green recorded his second hit of the game, moved to second on a Boggs walk, and scored on a Farris RBI single.

Nashville extended the lead to 4-2 in the bottom of the seventh. Erick Almonte singled and scored as Mat Gamel smoked his team-leading 19th double high off the centerfield wall. The RBI was Gamel’s 46th of the season.

Round Rock tied the contest at 4-4 in the top of the ninth inning with another two-run homer. After Joey Butler doubled, Vanderbilt graduate Matt Kata belted a game-tying two run homer off the guitar-shaped scoreboard.

In his third start of the season for Nashville, Mark DiFelice gave up two runs on six hits with four strikeouts on 67 pitches (46 strikes). DiFelice has allowed two runs or less in all three of his starts.

Mike McClendon tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out two. Daniel Herrera allowed two runs on three hits in two innings. The runs given up by Herrera were his first since joining the Sounds on May 23. Zack Segovia (2-2) pitched a perfect frame to earn the win.

In his fourth rehab start for Texas, Hunter allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits in 3 2/3 innings. Pedro Strop (4-3) took the loss.

The Sounds and Express will continue their series at 7:05pm on Wednesday evening at Greer Stadium. Nashville left-hander Sam Narron (4-2, 3.56) will face Express right-hander and former Sound Seth McClung (2-2, 5.14).
