Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds lost 7-5 in 10 innings to the Omaha Storm Chasers in front of a sold out First Tennessee Park in their first game after the All-Star break.

Dayan Viciedo started the scoring for the Sounds, driving Joey Wendle in from first with an opposite field triple. The home team would then load the bases the following inning and tally another run, going up 2-0.

The game remained that way until the fourth inning when Barry Zito ran into trouble. Keyed by four hits and a costly error from Nate Freiman, Omaha sent all nine batters to the plate and opened up a 4-2 advantage over the Sounds.

Nashville sliced the lead in half in the fifth inning, posting four consecutive hits to start the frame.

Wendle picked up his 39th RBI of the season, driving in Niuman Romero. Craig Gentry would tie the game up the following inning, bunting Carson Blair home to knot the game up at four and securing Zito a no-decision.

The veteran southpaw surrendered just two earned runs over six innings, notching his team-leading 11th quality start of the season.

Brett Eibner started the top of the ninth with a double off of Sounds reliever Brock Huntzinger and was bunted over to third. He then scored the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by Whit Merrifield.

The Sounds did not go down without a fight however. After Romero lined out, Gentry and Wendle registered base hits. Gentry would score on a wild pitch to tie the game. Wendle attempted to go to third when Francisco Pena’s throw went wide of pitcher Scott Alexander, but was thrown out by Balbino Fuenmayor.

Huntzinger struggled in the top of the tenth, walking the first two batters he faced. Ryan Cook came in and threw a wild pitch to Pena allowing the runners to advance and forcing Cook to intentionally walk the bases loaded. Cook would get Brett Eibner to strikeout, but then conceded a two-run single to Moises Sierra. The Sounds would go down in order in the tenth.

The Sounds and Storm Chasers will resume the series tomorrow night at First Tennessee Park. Sounds win-leader Zach Neal (7-3, 3.63) will be on the mound and will face Miguel Almonte who will make his Triple-A debut. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm.
