Nashville Sounds Baseball

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds benefitted from two throwing errors from pitcher Brian Moran in the bottom of the 10th inning to win 3-2 over the Tacoma Rainiers on Thursday night at Greer Stadium.

Schafer began the frame with an opposite-field single and moved to second on a pickoff attempt. Second baseman Eric Farris then hit a sacrifice bunt, which was then under thrown to first that allowed Schafer to score the winning-run.

It was the PCL-leading 15th extra-inning contest (6-9) for the Sounds and seventh in the last 20 games. Nashville’s last 10 games have been decided by one or two runs.

Shortstop Jeff Bianchi had two hits including a double. Outfielder Khris Davis homered to hit safely in 28 of his last 30 games, including 15 of 17 with the Sounds.

The game remained scoreless until both teams loaded the bases and traded runs in the fifth inning. After a Carlos Triunfel single, Guillermo Quiroz walk, and Darren Ford base hit, Nick Franklin hit a weak grounder to second, which caused Eric Farris to throw to first and allow the runner from third to score.

The Sounds tied the game at 1-1 in the next frame with the bases juiced and no outs, begging with three straight base hits from Humberto Quintero, Jeff Bianchi, and Logan Schafer. Tacoma starter D.J. Mitchell then got Farris to strike out before offering up a game-tying sacrifice fly to Khris Davis.

Tacoma went back ahead at 2-1 in the top of the eighth against reliever Brandon Kintzler. Franklin lined a base hit to right, moved to second on a wild pitch, and trotted home to score the go-ahead run on an RBI double from Luis Antonio.

Nashville came back to knot the score at 2-2 in the next frame as Davis went yard off the second pitch from Mitchell. The opposite-field blast, which landed just beyond the reach of the Tacoma right fielder, was Davis’ fourth of the season for the Sounds.

For the second consecutive outing, Nashville starter Wily Peralta surrendered only one run in seven innings for a no-decision. In 101 pitched (59 strikes), The 23-year-old scattered four hits and walked four on the night, but benefitted from two inning-ending double plays while striking out seven.

Kintzler gave up a run in one inning. Jesus Sanchez (4-0) struck out one in two frames for the victory.

Mitchell also pitched well in a no-decision and third quality start. The 25-year-old gave up two runs on six hits while striking out five in eight innings of work.  With 96 pitches (66 strikes), the eight innings matched a season-high set earlier this season on April 18th vs. Rochester as a member of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

Moran (2-2) was charged with the loss.

The Sounds and Rainiers conclude their four-game series at 7:05pm CT on Friday night at Greer Stadium. Nashville right-hander Brian Baker (2-4, 4.74) will take the mound in the homestand finale against Tacoma righty Andrew Carraway (4-6, 4.28).
