Nashville SoundsOklahoma City, OK – The Nashville Sounds dropped a 6-1 decision to the Oklahoma City RedHawks on Thursday evening at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in the opener of a four-game series.

The Sounds got a run back in the third. Hector Gomez led off with a double against RedHawks hurler Mike Foltynewicz, moved to third on a balk, and scored on an Eugenio Velez groundout.

Foltynewicz (2-1) picked up the victory after he allowed one run on four hits over five innings of work, while Pena (0-1) took the loss by giving up a pair of runs on four hits in his five frames, walking three batters and striking out three.

The RedHawks pulled away in the seventh by plating four runs against a trio of Sounds relievers. Kyle Heckathorn gave up a run, Brent Leach surrendered a pair, and Michael Blazek was touched for a run plus allowed all three of his inherited baserunners to score in the frame. Second baseman Ronald Torreyes highlighted the Oklahoma City offensive outburst with a two-run double.

Oklahoma City pitchers retired 14 of the final 16 Sounds batters, with the two who reached base being erased on double play groundouts.

Sounds second baseman Irving Falu singled in the eighth inning to extend his hit streak to six games, matching the longest effort by a Sound this season.

The teams continue the series with another 7:05 pm matchup on Friday. Right-hander Mike Fiers (3-0, 0.87) will man the bump for the Sounds and face Oklahoma City right-hander Jose Cisnero (0-0, 2.45).
