Colorado Springs, CO – The Nashville Sounds rallied for five runs with two outs in the ninth inning but it was not enough as they were upended 6-5 by the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Nashville is now 0-3 and has been outscored 18-7 in Sunday contests.
After being silenced for much of the day by the Sky Sox pitching staff, the Sounds finally broke through with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Chris Parmelee ripped a double to get the rally started. The next six batters to come to the plate would reach base. Renato Nunez was then walked, followed by a two-run double by Bruce Maxwell to light up the scoreboard for the first time.
