In his seventh quality start of the season, Peralta (6-9) gave up two runs on five hits and two walks for the win. His 11 strikeouts set a career high and were also the most by a Sounds starter in a game this season. Peralta has five victories in his last eight starts (5-1, 2.66 ERA, 12er/40.2ip).

Third baseman Andy Gonzalez (2-for-4) drove in three while second baseman Eric Farris went 2-for-3 with and RBI and two runs scored to extend his hitting streak to a season-high nine games and match his best effort this season.

Nashville took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning as catcher Dayton Buller gave the club their first hit of the contest with a double. The backstop then hustled around to score from second base on a throwing error by the pitcher.

The Sounds tacked on two more runs in the next inning to go ahead 3-0. Farris led off with a single and moved to second on a walk by center fielder Caleb Gindl to remove Memphis starter Nick Additon from the contest. Gonzalez then crushed two-run double to left-center off reliever Maikel Cleto.

Memphis got to Peralta in sixth, plating two runs to cut the lead to 3-2. With no outs and runners on second and third thanks to a walk and double, Lou Montanez hit a double to right-center.

Nashville batted around and plated four runs in the next frame for a 7-2 advantage. The rally began with consecutive doubles from right fielder Jordan Brown and shortstop Edwin Maysonet, followed a Farris RBI single over the third baseman’s head. The speedy left-fielder later scored from an RBI two-bagger to center by Gindl.

Memphis added a late run in the ninth on a sacrifice fly against reliever Mike McClendon.

In his first appearance since joining the Sounds, left-hander Mitch Stetter struck out one and walked one in one inning pitched. Amaury Rivas pitched a perfect eighth.

Four Memphis pitchers combined to strike out 16 Sounds on the night, as season-high for both Redbirds pitching and Sounds hitters.

Additon allowed three runs (one earned) in four plus innings. The right-hander struck out nine over four plus innings and opened the contest by striking out five of his first six.

The Sounds and division-rival Redbirds will play the finale of their four-game series at 7:05pm CT Friday night at Greer Stadium. Nashville right-hander Mark Rogers (6-6, 4.72) will toe the rubber against right-hander Brandon Dickson (5-8, 3.82).
