Nashville starting pitcher Wily Peralta retired the first 10 batters of the game before allowing consecutive singles to DJ LeMahieu and Matt McBride in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old then walked Brendan Harris and Andrew Brown to give Colorado Spring its first run.

Peralta ran into some trouble after getting the first two Sky Sox out in the top of the sixth. Matt McBride doubled to right and then scored as Brendan Harris singled. In the ensuing at-bat, Brown hit a ground-rule double down the right field line to plate McBride for the third run.

The Sounds trimmed the lead to 3-2 in the home half of the sixth. After pinch hitter Hailey Statia worked a walk from reliever Jordan Wells to open the inning, Schafer blasted a two-run homer over the right field wall. The long ball was his team-leading fourth of the season.

The Sky Sox extended their lead to 4-2 in the top of the seventh inning, which included three pitches. Amaury Rivas got the first out of the inning and then walked former Sound Wil Nieves before leaving the game. Juan Perez then proceeded to walk Brandon Roberts and allow an RBI single to former Sound Hernan Iribarren. Donovan Hand finished the inning by inducing a double play on one pitch.

Brandon Wood’s opposite field two-run homer pushed the Sky Sox lead to 6-2 n the top of the eighth.

In his team-leading fourth quality start of the season, Peralta (1-3) surrendered three runs on five hits and two walks in six innings for the loss. Coming into the game leading the PCL in ground out to air our ratio, Peralta induced 11 groundouts (nine to shortstop) and zero fly outs while striking out four.

Rivas was charged with a run in 1/3 of an inning. Hand gave up two runs on two hits in 1 2/3 frames. Dan Meadows allowed a hit and a walk while fanning three in an inning.

Sky So starter Edgar Gonzalez (2-1) pitched five scoreless frames while fanning five for the victory.

The Sounds begin a four-game series with the Reno Aces (AAA-Diamondbacks) at 6:35pm CT on Saturday night at Greer Stadium. Right-hander Brian Baker (1-2, 6.65) will toe the rubber for Nashville against Reno righty Joe Martinez (0-2, 5.59).
