It’s the first time the Sounds (47-37) have been swept in nearly a calendar year. The last time was August 15th-18th of last season when the El Paso Chihuahuas came into First Tennessee Park and won four straight.

Both starters were locked in early and didn’t allow any runs. Zach Neal, working in his first game since being optioned from Oakland, worked four shutout innings after being used primarily out of the bullpen by the A’s.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of July 3rd, 2016

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – U.S. financial markets spent most of the week pricing in a greater likelihood that the United Kingdom would vote to remain in the European Union.

Oops. The surprise “leave” victory in the U.K. referendum sent markets reeling. Global stock markets fell sharply. The pound plunged (to a 30-year low). Bond yields sank, reflecting a flight to safety.

Still, this wasn’t a Lehman-type event. Market participants were simply caught leaning the wrong way. Prime Minister Cameron resigned, effective October, leaving his predecessor a lengthy negotiation with the EU on exit terms.
