Nashville Sounds rally with two outs in the ninth to beat New Orleans Zephyrs, 3-2

 

Brad Mills Allows Just Two Runs And Lowers ERA To 3.66

Nashville SoundsMetairie, LA – The Sounds used ninth inning heroics for the second straight game to move past New Orleans on Sunday afternoon at Zephyr Field, 3-2.

Held even in a 2-2 tie, Nashville entered the ninth inning trying to repeat last night’s success of overcoming the Zephyrs late. The feat seemed too great after New Orleans recorded two quick outs, but the Sounds had other things in mind.

Jason Pridie smoked a line drive out to left that went for his 13th double of the year and two batters later, Alden Carrithers drove him in with a two-out single. It was the left fielder’s first hit of the game but it was enough to help Nashville move to 28-29 on the year.

Pridie scored the Sounds first run of the game in the second as well. After leading the frame off with a single and seeing Niuman Romero follow with one as well, Luke Carlin eventually drove the outfielder in with a two-out double. Carlin collected two hits in total to allow Nashville to outhit New Orleans, 10-6.

The home team quickly tied it in the third but Nashville regained the advantage when Ryan Roberts doubled in Matt Carson. New Orleans plated its last run in the seventh before seeing the Sounds put them away in the ninth.

The theme of terrific pitching continued as Brad Mills worked his team-leading sixth quality start. The left-hander took a no-decision despite striking out four over 6.1 innings of two-run ball. Angel Castro earned his first win of the season, but did allow one of his two inherited runs to score. Overall, the right-hander recorded 1.2 scoreless innings. R.J. Alvarez wrapped up the contest and moved into a tie for the team-lead with his fifth save of the year.

Nashville and New Orleans will complete a suspended game from April 27th tomorrow beginning at 5:00pm before starting the regularly scheduled contest immediately after. The second game will feature Chris Bassitt (2-3, 3.38) against Mat Latos.
