Nashville Sounds Baseball

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to come from behind and win 5-3 over the Salt Lake Bees on Saturday night at Greer Stadium. The win was the Sounds’ second consecutive come-from-behind victory against the Bees and 12th of the season.

Twenty of Nashville’s 56 victories this season have come when the Sounds score the winning run in their final turn at the plate, which has been the case in six of the club’s last eight wins.

Designated hitter Taylor Green led the charge, going 3-for-4 with a double and RBI.

Trailing 3-0 entering the eighth, Nashville batted around during their five-run rally, doing damage against Jordan Walden in his first rehab appearance for the Los Angeles Angels. Walden began the inning by allowing singles to Logan Schafer and Eric Farris, sandwiched around an Edwin Maysonet hit-by-pitch to load the bases.

Outfielder Caleb Gindl brought home the first run on a deep sacrifice fly to center. Khris Davis then blasted a ground rule double just beyond the reach of the Salt Lake right fielder to score Maysonet and remove Walden from the contest.

First baseman Jordan Brown then hit a weak grounder to third, which was booted by Salt Lake and allowed the tying run to score. Davis scored the go-ahead run on the third pitch of Green’s at-bat, which was a wild pitch that bounced into the Salt Lake dugout. Green would cap the five-run rally with an RBI single on the next pitch from reliever Adam Russell.

In a no-decision, Nashville starter Wily Peralta gave up one run on a solo homer while fanning six in seven innings of work. The quality start was his team-leading eighth of the season. Perez (4-0) backed into the victory. Wooten struck out two in a perfect ninth to end the contest for his fourth save.

In his fourth start with the Bees, Salt Lake starter Barry Enright tossed seven shutout innings of three-hit ball while striking out four. The 26-year-old had a perfect game until Green doubled with one out in the bottom of the fifth.

Salt Lake catcher Hank Conger belted a two-out, solo homer in the second inning to give Salt Lake an early 1-0 advantage. The long ball the backstop’s seventh of the season.

The Bees added their final two runs in the top of the eighth for a 3-0 lead. With runners on first and second and one out, Kole Couhoun grounded into a possible inning-ending double play. However, Farris was only able to throw out the runner at first base. Next batter Luis Jimenez then lined a two-run double down the left field line against reliever Juan Perez.

The Sounds and Bees will continue their series at 6:35pm CT on Sunday night at Greer Stadium. Right-hander Brian Baker (2-4, 5.03) takes the mound for Nashville against Salt Lake righty Garrett Richards (5-3, 5.03).
