Nashville Sounds drop 7-1 contest to Omaha Storm Chasers, lose fifth straight game

 

Nashville Sounds Bullpen Allows One Run Over 6 2/3 Innings

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds celebrated Father’s Day at First Tennessee Park on Sunday, but were on the wrong end of a 7-1 tilt and lost the series finale against the Omaha Storm Chasers.

The loss marked the third time that Nashville has been swept in a four-game set this season. The Sounds were outscored 17-7 in the series and dropped to 11 games below .500 for the second time this season.

Craig Gentry opened the Father’s Day contest by banging his second long ball in the last five games. The game-opening homer, which pushed the outfielder’s hitting streak to 11 games, was the first by a Sounds player since Scooter Gennett hit one against the Round Rock Express on July 3rd, 2013. Nashville has outscored their opponent 34-15 in the first inning this season.

Starter Sean Nolin was coming off a win against Memphis, but had some early control issues that forced an exit.

The left-hander never made it out of the third inning, allowing back-to-back walks with the bases loaded and giving up a season-high six runs.

The six-run third inning tied the most runs surrendered by Nashville pitching in a frame this year. Matt Fields had the big hit for Omaha, collecting a two-run single through the left side. The Storm Chasers tacked on another run in the eighth and completed the sweep with a 7-1 victory.

The combination of Angel Castro, Arnold Leon, Jim Fuller and Ryan Verdugo delivered 6 2/3 innings of relief. The four arms allowed four hits and fanned four to finish the game for the Sounds.

Nashville posted five hits in the series finale. Joey Wendle, Jason Pridie and Anthony Aliotti joined Gentry (2-for-4, HR, 2B), who collected his fourth double in the last five games, as the only players to have a hit.

First Tennessee Park drew a crowd of 7,589 on Sunday. The seven-game homestand featured three sellouts and a total of 60,501 fans.

Nashville will enjoy a league-wide off day on Monday and jump back into action on Tuesday. They open a three-game series against their cross-state rival the Memphis Redbirds at AutoZone Park. The veteran Barry Zito (4-6, 3.90) will throw against prospect Tim Cooney. The game starts at 7:05pm.
