Barry Zito Delivers Eighth Quality Start Of Season in Losing Effort

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds saw their three-game winning streak come to an end on Sunday night in front of 9,297 fans at First Tennessee Park, falling to the Oklahoma City Dodgers 5-0.

The Dodgers touched Sounds starter Barry Zito for two runs in the third inning. First, Kyle Jensen walked and scored on a triple by Buck Britton. Britton then came around to score on Darnell Sweeney’s sacrifice fly. The Dodgers would lead wire-to-wire.

Zito pitched well, throwing a season-high 114 pitches over seven innings, giving up just those two runs.

Unfortunately for the veteran southpaw and the Sounds, Dodgers pitcher Scott Baker was better on this night. The Dodgers right-hander went eight scoreless, holding the Sounds lineup to just two hits.

The Dodgers added three runs off the Sounds bullpen in the eighth. Infielders Darwin Barney and Corey Seager singled off Jim Fuller to start the frame. Fuller then struck out Chris Heisey, before Steve Scarsone went to Angel Castro. Castro was unable to keep the inherited runners from scoring, surrendering a sacrifice fly, a triple and a single before striking out Jensen to get out of the frame.

The Sounds were outhit 9-3, with all three hits going for singles. The home team left all three runners on base and never got past first base. With the loss, Zito fell to 5-7, while Baker improved to 7-3. Dodgers reliever Josh Ravin pitched the ninth inning giving up a single to Joey Wendle.

The Sounds and Dodgers will play for the final time this season tomorrow night. Zach Neal (5-1) will be on the bump for Nashville. He will be opposed by Deck McGuire. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm from First Tennessee Park.
