Nashville Sounds beat Oklahoma City Redhawks 6-1

Nashville SoundsOklahoma City, OK – Eugenio Velez extended his hitting streak to 17 games and drove in a pair of runs to help lead the Nashville Sounds to a 6-1 victory over the Oklahoma City RedHawks on Wednesday evening at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Right-hander Alfredo Figaro (1-0) earned his first Triple-A win of the year for Nashville by allowing one run in his five innings of work, scattering four hits and inducing three double plays during his 73-pitch effort.

The Sounds (54-85) struck first, plating a pair of runs in the top of the third against RedHawks starter Asher Wojciechowski. Hainley Statia drew an inning-opening walk and moved to third on a Josh Prince double before both runners scored when Velez extended Nashville’s longest hit streak of the year to 17 games with a two-run single to center.

Velez is batting .333 (25-for-75) during his hit streak and has also reached base safely in 31 straight contests, one shy of the longest such effort in the Pacific Coast League this season.

Nashville Sounds - Blake LalliNashville tacked on a run in the fourth when Robinzon Diaz (2-for-5) singled with one out and later scored on a Hainley Statia fielder’s choice grounder.

Wojciechowski (9-7) absorbed the loss for the ‘Hawks after allowing three runs on six hits in his 4 2/3 frames of action.

Oklahoma City netted its first run in the home half of the fourth when Figaro uncorked a two-out wild pitch to allow Brandon Laird to race plateward.

The Sounds increased their advantage to 4-1 in the sixth against RedHawks reliever Hector Ambriz. Blake Lalli (3-for-4) led off with an infield single and moved to third on a Diaz double before scoring on a Stephen Parker groundout.

Nashville Sounds - Hunter MorrisNashville kept the offense churning in the seventh with a pair of two-out scores off Wade LeBlanc. After the first two batters of the frame were retired, Sean Halton singled before scoring on an opposite-field RBI double into the left field corner by Hunter Morris (2-for-4), who extended his hitting streak to six games (11-for-24, .458). Lalli followed Morris with a run-scoring single that made it a 6-1 contest.

Dustin Molleken was solid in relief behind Figaro, allowing just one single and striking out a pair of batters during three scoreless frames of work.

Jesus Sanchez made things interesting in the ninth, opening the frame with a warning track flyout before permitting a pair of baserunners. The right-hander recovered to retired the final two batters to escape the jam and close out the win with a scoreless frame.

The Sounds will look to secure just their third winning road series of the year when the teams wrap up the four-game series with a 7:05pm finale on Thursday night. Left-hander Aaron Laffey (6-8, 6.82) will man the bump for the Sounds and face Oklahoma City right-hander Bobby Doran (3-0, 3.96).
