Nashville Baseball

Nashville SoundsDes Moines, IA – With the Nashville Sounds down a run and down to their final out with the bases fully loaded, Franklin Barreto stepped up to the plate. The A’s top prospect ambushed a 1-0 pitch and sent it beyond the fence in left center field to give the Sounds the 5-2 win over the Iowa Cubs.

Michael Brady was spectacular for the Sounds aside from two batters in the third inning and it almost cost him and the ball club. The Iowa Cubs could only muster a pair of base runners against Brady but both came around to score.
