Nashville Sounds lose to Omaha Storm Chasers 3-2 in Monday match-up

 

Nashville SoundsPapillion, NE Despite outhitting their opponent Monday morning while battling light snow flurries in 36 degree temps, the Nashville Sounds were edged 3-2 by the Omaha Storm Chasers at Werner Park, dropping the series, 3-1.

With the game tied at 2-2 in the seventh, Omaha left fielder Xavier Nady jumped on Hiram Burgos’ (0-2) 70th pitch for a wind-aided home run to right field that proved to be the game winner.

Burgos allowed each of the Storm Chasers three runs on six hits across 6 2/3 innings, the longest outing by a Sounds pitcher this season, and was charged with the loss, his second.

Omaha cashed in David Lough’s lead-off triple in the first inning with Johnny Giavotella’s RBI-single to left field. Giavotella touched Burgos again in the fourth for a game-tying solo home run.

Nashville Sounds - Sean HaltonBurgos tossed 79 pitches in his third start of the year and threw 55 for strikes, offering no walks and fanning four Chasers before Nashville called on Donovan Hand from the bullpen. The right-handed reliever finished the game for the Sounds, collecting 1 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball, and now holds seven scoreless innings in four appearances in 2013.

Offensively, Sounds outfielder Sean Halton tied the game 1-1 in the second inning by cracking his first home run of the season over the wall in left field. In the following inning, the Sounds connected on two hits to take the lead. After designated hitter Joey Paciorek drew a walk and advanced to second on Scooter Gennett’s line drive to center field, Sounds shortstop Ozzie Chavez hit a single into left field to score Paciorek for the 2-1 lead.

Nashville Sounds - Scooter GennettNashville nearly scored a go-ahead run in the top of the seventh, on Chavez’s single to left field, but Hainley Statia was tagged out at home while trying to score from second. Statia reached base on balls and moved to second on Paciorek’s sacrifice bunt.

Stephen Parker and catcher Anderson De La Rosa extended their season-high hitting streaks to six and four games respectively, while infielders Scooter Gennett and Chavez led the team with two hits apiece.

Picking up the win for Omaha was starter Chris Dwyer (2-1), who allowed two runs through seven innings, fanning seven and walking three. Michael Mariot picked up his second save.

The Sounds travel to De Moines, Iowa, this afternoon to begin a four-game series Tuesday with the Iowa Cubs. Starting on the hill for the Sounds will be RHP Frankie De La Cruz (1-0, 0.00) against Iowa’s LHP Brooks Raley (0-2, 4.91).
